To preserve the independence and keep alive the spirit of HCB's work.

To maintain this exceptional heritage in France which will be inalienable and open to visitors.

To show - through exhibitions - the "highlights" of the collection and the work of other photographers, painters, sculptors. This is the originality of the Foundation.

To allow scholars access to carefully organized archives for research purposes.

To encourage creativity through a biennale grant program that provides financial support for a photography project selected by an international jury.

To stimulate exchange and debate through an ongoing conference and lecture program.
