Cartier-Bresson was one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, and is considered by many to be the father of photojournalism and street photography. He is particularly known for his talent in capturing a decisive moment in time. The exhibition with its 300 photographs and supporting material takes a look at Henri Cartier-Bresson’s production during his long career.
“We are honoured to support photographic art."
“We are honoured to support photographic art. Stora Enso’s involvement with art photography dates back to the launch of the second paper machine PM7 in Oulu in 1997. At that time, we invested in art photography via ‘the Lumi Collection’. The Lumi collection combines three elements: high-quality paper, the company line of business, and pictures as the most effective language of communication. The exhibition leaflet uses LumiArt and LumiForte. In addition, a kit will be made for school children using LumiForte,” says Katariina Tanner,
VP, Marketing, Stora Enso Paper.
‘’The Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition, presents many of the most iconic photographs of the 20th century”, says Director of Museum Susanna Pettersson. “It allows us to revisit key moments of the past century, but its message is as contemporary as it always was: the dignity and value of human life is precious, no matter where you travel to.”
The exhibit runs from 23 October to 31 January 2016.
