Cartier-Bresson: A Question Of ColourTen previously unseen Henri Cartier-Bresson images feature in a Somerset House exhibition on the emergence of colour photography. It's well-known that Cartier-Bresson was disparaging towards colour in photography but, as this exhibition demonstrates, his criticisms of the medium spurred on a new generation, determined to overcome the obstacles and prove him wrong. Curated by William A. Ewing, the free display in the Terrace Rooms and Courtyard Rooms features over 75 works by 15 modern-day photographers including, Carolyn Drake, Andy Freeberg, Ernst Hass, Fred Herzog and Alex Webb and illustrates how photographers working in Europe and North America adopted and adapted what Cartier-Bresson referred to as 'the decisive moment' to their work in colour.
