> DESCRIPTION
This exhibition focuses on the early work of Henri Cartier-Bresson.  It is based on an exhibition that the artists himself  helped to curate for the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1947.  Origianly assumed dead in World War Two the MOMA exhibit was intended as a memorial, the artist was alive however and when this was discovered he joined in the curatorial efforts for the retrospective.  The artist printed over 300 photographs which he then pasted into a scrapbook.   It is these photographs and scrapbook, which  have been reassembled, that form the base of this current show.
