Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) was a French photographer who is considered to be one of the most influential photographers of all time. A master of “candid photography,” he helped develop the street photography style that influenced generations of photographers and even enthusiasts. He also co-founded Magnum Photos together with Robert Capa, David Seymour, William Vandivert and George Rodger.

This posthumous show will feature 90 black and white prints not just by Cartier-Bresson, but also by fellow photographer Paul Strand. The collection will also include unpublished works of Cartier Bresson and showcase Strand’s collections from Spain, Mexico and the United States. The show will be housed on La Maison des artistes – the current headquarters of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation or Fondation HCB.

He also has a current ongoing exhibition at Kunst Haus Wien titled The Compass in the Eye: America-India-Soviet Union which is open until February 26th, 2012.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
