Official catalogue of the exhibition Henri Cartier-Bresson, Centre Pompidou, Paris, from February 12th to June 9th 2014.
Henri Cartier-Bresson is certainly well known for his capacity to “catch the instant”. His career is though very long and can be divided into different artistic phases demonstrating a wider and varied work.
There is not one Henri Cartier Bresson and the 2014 retrospective at Pompidou Centre has shown the multiple aspects of his career: photographer close to the Surrealists, war reporter, experimental artist…
Two main subjects are at the heart of the purpose : the evolution of the photographer’s research and his role as one of the most significant witness of the XXth century.
The catalogue is divided into 6 parts, to illustrate the photographic diversity of Cartier Bresson’s work in opposition to the current limited vision of his research.
