Cartier Bresson’s Century

Format: 1 X 52'
Author: Pierre Assouline


Few have revolutionized photography as much as French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson has. The father of modern photojournalism, who died ten years ago, contributed spreading the “street photography” or “life reportage”, a style that influenced generations of photographers. In this documentary, he narrates the crucial moments of his life, such as his meeting with Ghandi, while his shots illustrate his work.
