“Putting on the same line of sight, the heart, the mind and the eye.”

“Putting on the same line of sight, the heart, the mind and the eye.”

This was the thought of Henri Cartier Bresson, the great photographer of the moment and eternity!

This exhibition is a journey between his art and the memories of his best friends, the thoughts of other great artists, historians, photographers and intellectuals who knew him

The exhibition is titled in fact, Images and Words, and  narrative voices will accompany you as a guide.

The artist who knew how to make a seemingly insignificant moment, a masterpiece…

I love the black and white, even if it seems easier, not at all.

Here are his ten lessons for “photos from the road”:

– Focusing on the geometry
– Be patient
– travel
– Be faithful to a single goal
– Photographing children
– Not be intrusive
– Look at the world as a painter
– Do not cut photos
– Not develop the photos yourself
– Think of the next photograph.

Cartier Bresson was not jealous of his pictures, like all geniuses, he was generous…
