On 8 November, London's Somerset House and the Positive View Foundation will be opening and exhibition titled "Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour". Curated by William A. Ewing, the exhibition will feature 10 Henri Cartier-Bresson photographs never before exhibited in the UK alongside over 75 works by 15 international contemporary photographers, including Karl Baden, Carolyn Drake, Andy Freeberg, Fred Herzog, Helen Levitt, Jeff Mermelstein, and Alex Webb.
The aim of the show is to illustrate how "photographers working in Europe and North America adopted and adapted the master's ethos famously known as 'the decisive moment' to their work in colour." Cartier-Bresson was famously disparaging towards colour photography, stating that it has both technical and aesthetic limitations. Speaking about the show, curator William E. Ewing said:
"Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour" will run through 27 January, 2013.
