Henri Cartier-Bresson's "India in Full Frame" opens at Rubin Museum

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
"Henri Cartier-Bresson: India in Full-Frame” is organized by the Rubin Museum of Art in collaboration with Magnum Photos and the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation.
NEW YORK---The Rubin Museum of Art presents disputed borders, refugees, charismatic leaders, assassinations—the India of the mid-century that does not sound so distant from the world today. It was a time and place captured expertly and in great depth by the pioneering photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908–2004). The resulting photos of Gandhi’s last day of life and the events surrounding his funeral, which helped catapult Cartier-Bresson to international fame, are part of a selection of 69 photographs from the photographer’s travels to India shared in the exhibition.


Rubin Museum of Art: "Henri Cartier-Bresson's India in Full Frame" (April 21 – September 4); 150 West 17th St. New York, NY; (212) 620-5000; rubinmuseum.org
