Henri Cartier-Bresson

Henri Cartier-Bresson

This retrospective exhibition, the first since the photographer's death, includes a substantial collection of work from across Cartier-Bresson's career and has since travelled to The Art Institute of Chicago, SFMOMA and the High Museum. The site features all of the photographs from the MoMA exhibition as well as detailed maps of his journeys and a chronology of the photographs, making this a valuable educational resource. Supplementary texts and audioguide materials produced by Acoustiguide provide context and historical information. Designed by Second Story, this site utilizes modern browser technologies and large images to provide an elegant experience that focuses on the beautiful and compelling work of Cartier-Bresson.
