Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour

Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour
LONDON  •  Somerset House Trust  •  Ongoing

It is well-known that Cartier-Bresson was disparaging towards colour photography, which in the 1950s was in its early years of development; his reasoning was based both on the technical and aesthetic limitations of the medium at the time. 

Featuring 10 Cartier-Bresson photographs never before exhibited in the UK alongside over 75 works by 14 international acclaimed photographers, this show seeks to illustrate how photographers working in Europe and North America adopted and adapted the master's ethos famously known as  the ‘decisive moment' to their work in colour.
