CARTIER-BRESSON: THE EYE OF THE CENTURY IN ROME

To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.”
Henri Cartier-Bresson’s statement inspires the exhibition set up in Rome to commemorate the first decade since his departure: 500 of his works (pictures, but also films, documentaries, drawings and paintings) will be on display until January 25th 2015 at Ara Pacis, a unique monument of its kind located in the core of Rome.
Reputed the father of photojournalism, Henri Cartier-Bresson’s shots captured events, daily life and atmospheres throughout many decades of the ‘900, after which thing he was rightly named “eye of the Century”.
A good reason to visit Rome between now and January: book your nights with us to enjoy a centrally located accommodation.2014-09-25-Cover_Catalogo_mostra_HCB-thumb
