The show

«Eye of the century» : this is how Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) is defined, one of the most important cultural protagonists of the 20th century, considered the pioneer of photojournalism. From February 18, his personal exhibition linked to two Chinese reports for which he is remembered as the absolute master of the so-called "decisive instant" in photography arrives in Italy for the first time .


The exhibition “ Henri Cartier-Bresson. China 1948-49 | 1958 ", at Mudec Photo from 18 February to 3 July 2022, produced by 24 ORE Cultura - 24 ORE Group, promoted by the Municipality of Milano-Cultura and curated by Michel Frizot and Ying-Lung Su was created thanks to the collaboration of the Henri Foundation Cartier-Bresson and brings together an exceptional corpus of photographs and archival documents of the French photojournalist: over 100 original prints along with period magazine publications, documents and letters from the collection of the HCB Foundation.


An unprecedented excursus that recounts two key moments in the history of China : the fall of the Kuomintang (1948-1949) and Mao Zedong's " Great Leap Forward " (1958). An important moment in the history of world photojournalism, experienced through the personal approach of the master Cartier-Bresson, who was the first to highlight - through the eye of his lens - important themes of change in contemporary Chinese history, managing to present to the Western world also aspects hidden by the regime's propaganda such as the exploitation of human resources and the omnipresence of militias.
