Henri Cartier Bresson's lens on the world


Peter Galassi, chief curator of photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art, talks about Henri Cartier Bresson, the man whose camera left such an enduring mark.

For decades, Bresson travelled the globe capturing different cultures through his camera lens, and his iconic photos established him as one of the 20th century's great photojournalists.

For the first time in more than 30 years a major retrospective on his work has opened in the US.
