MoMA’s exhibition of Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century showcases the classical works of the iconic and renowned photographer through 300 of his photographs taken from 1929 to 1989. Astoundingly enough, at least one fifth of these images were previously unknown to the public and focus on Henri Cartier-Bresson’s golden years, the 1930’s through the 1960’s. The exhibition will also comprise of numerous selections of vintage issues of life, Paris Match, and many others, which contain many original photographs.
Peter Galassi, Chief Curator, Department of Photography organized the awe-inspiring exhibition, which will be on display from April 11th through June 28th. Those in attendance included Charlie Rose, Lee Friedlander, Neil Albert, Nanette Lapore, John Phelan, and Catherine Mosley, all of whom wished to partake in such a historical display of art. Guests wandered around the room as photographs were spread out among the walls and copies of original photographs and magazines were sprawled across a black table in the center of the room.
