Recommended: Henri Cartier-Bresson at Somerset House

“Henri Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour” is a highly recommended current exhibition next door to King’s at Somerset House. It takes some rarely exhibited black and white prints from the celebrated photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, and compares these with work in colour by more recent documentary photographers. The question of whether such images work best in colour or black and white (which Cartier-Bresson preferred) underlies the exhibition.
This exhibition is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in photography and/or art theory, and will be especially relevant to my Visual Culture students at King’s.
“Henri Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour” runs until 27th January 2013. Admission is free.
