REOPENING OF THE FONDATION HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON IN THE CENTER OF PARIS

FONDATION HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON

After fifteen years at the forefront since it opened in Montparnasse, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson inaugurates a new space dedicated to photography in the heart of Le Marais. 
 
With a more flexible, street-level exhibition space that has been more than doubled in area – soon to be tripled –, the new premises o er greatly improved facilities for receiving the public, school visits and persons with reduced mobility as well as conservation conditions meeting the highest standards and collections gathered on one single site offering more convenient access for researchers.
For the opening of its new spaces, the Fondation HCB wanted to pay tribute to Martine Franck by a retrospective dedicated to her. Martine Franck professed a wonder and celebration of life, a profound joy faced with humanity while at the same time fighting against exclusion with all the empathy she was able to show. A socially engaged photographer, Martine Franck became an activist for many of these causes she actively photographed, which required a great deal of courage and daring for the young woman who had been taught not to cross the boundaries.
