About

What makes Henri Cartier-Bresson’s vast body of work so universally impressive is that he was seemingly present at every significant event and in the intimate company of every important figure of the 20th Century. Trained as a painter at a young age, Cartier-Bresson was heavily influenced by the Cubist and Surrealist concepts when he first began photographing towards at end of the 1920s. While their aesthetics show through in his early images on view from France and Mexico in the 1930s, it was a photograph of boys running in to the surf by Hungarian photographer Martin Munkacsi (Three Boys at Lake Tanganyika, 1930) that firmly established in the young artist the expressive and graphic potential of the instant photographic medium. Following the advice of Robert Capa, Cartier-Bresson shed the modernist labels of the era and began to document humanity’s rhythm within the context of photojournalism.
