Henri Cartier Bresson











Henri Cartier-Bresson was born in Chanteloup-en-Brie, near Paris, France. Initially a surrealist painter, he put down his brush in exchange for a camera in the 1930s after being inspired by a Martin Munkacsi photograph. Henri Cartier-Bresson’s work can be found in many collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; and the Musee Carnavalet, Paris.
