by Henri Cartier-Bresson
Palazzo art delle i Napoli (Italy) presents the exhibition “The Mind’s Eye” by Henri Cartier-Bresson, from April 29th to July 24th.
“For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to ‘give a meaning’ to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what one frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, a discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry – it is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.”
