– Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004), the French photographer who redefined both photojournalism and his craft as an art form, will be celebrated in a major exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery from August 27th to November 27th. Queensland Art Gallery Director Tony Ellwood said “Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Man, The Image & The World‟ would feature work from throughout the renowned photographer‟s extraordinary career, which spanned over 70 years. “Cartier-Bresson‟s photography is exceptional for capturing “the decisive moment”, an illustration of action, emotion and an entire story through the single frame of the camera lens,‟ Mr Ellwood said.
