From 10th March to 11th June 2017, Palazzo Ducale
A journey to the discovery of the most important photograph of the 20th century.140 photographs by Henri Cartier Bresson will be on display at Palazzo Ducale: an unmissable chance to discover his world, the richness of each one of his pictures, a testament to a conscious man, to his lucid gaze on the historical and sociological reality. A great occasion for his admirers or for all those wanting to discover this great photographer, who narrated the 20th century through his observation of common people, cities and trends.
His photographs capture the contemporary nature of things and life; they show the clearness and precision of this perception and the order of the shapes portrayed. Here is what he said about his work: "To take photographs means to recognize - simultaneously and within a fraction of a second - both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis”.
