Cartier-Bresson @ Peter Fetterman

Peter Fetterman Gallery presents Henri Cartier Bresson:

In celebration of the its 20-year anniversary, the Peter Fetterman Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Henri Cartier-Bresson: Eye of The Century by renowned photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. This exhibition runs from October 8, 2010 to January 8, 2011.

When Peter Fetterman founded his gallery in 1990, Henri Cartier-Bresson was one of his cornerstone photographers along with Cornell Capa, Willy Ronis, Eduard Boubat and SebastiĆ£o Salgado. Fetterman launched his collection with Cartier-Bresson’s famous image Sringar. He eventually went to Paris to meet the master. Fetterman built a personal relationship with the photographer that lasted fourteen years until Cartier-Bresson’s passing but continues today through his wife Martine Franck. Fetterman was given this unique opportunity and through it he was able to encourage Cartier-Bresson to print images that had never been printed before including Queen Charlotte’s Ball and Bolshoi Ballet.
