After his studies at the drawing school of André Lhotes from 1927 until 1928, he soon after took on photography. Considered to be the father of modern photojournalism, Henri Cartier-Bresson followed with his camera, after having escaped his own imprisonment by the National Socialists, the Occupation and then the Liberation of France and started there with his long and very successful career as documentary photographer.

In the following year, Henri Cartier-Bresson received the great honour to be the first photographer ever who was entitled to exhibit his works at the Louvre in Paris. Together with Robert Capa, David Seymour and George Rodger he founded the legendary photographic cooperative Magnum and in 2003, Cartier-Bresson established with his wife, the Belgian photographer Martine Franck, the Fondation Henri-Cartier-Bresson in Paris, where his own works but also works of important contemporary artists are exhibited.
