Celebrating Henri Cartier-Bresson's notion of the 'decisive moment', this exhibition brings together 15 photographs by the master photographer with 75 works by 14 European and North American practitioners. Colour images by photographers including Ernst Haas, Fred Herzog, Saul Leiter, Helen Levitt and Robert Walker illustrate how Cartier-Bresson's ethos of intuitively capturing a moment on film has impacted the work of generations of photographers. The show, which features works by Cartier-Bresson that have never been seen in the UK, has been organised by the newly established Positive View Foundation, which backs education projects that use photography to support disadvantaged young people.
