Henri Cartier-Bresson, "Rarely / Unseen"

The 16th Annual Los Angeles Art Show, taking place January 19-23 at the Los Angeles Convention Center will debut a special exhibit of never before seen works by master French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Titled "Rarely / Unseen" the exhibit is curated by Peter Fetterman, owner of Peter Fetterman Gallery and will feature more than 35 photographs that have never been printed before. Amassed over a 20 year period, when Fetterman was Bresson's primary U.S. gallery, many of these images have never been seen by the public.

Henri Cartier-Bresson (August 22, 1908-August 3, 2004) is known as the father of modern photojournalism and considered a master of candid photography. He helped develop the "street photography" or "real life reportage" style that has influenced generations of photographers who followed.

The Los Angeles Art Show is the most important art fair on the West Coast with more than 10,000 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and prints on exhibit.
