LA Art Show ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson

If you are in the Los Angeles area this weekend, (how I wish I were!), and are a fan of Henri Cartier-Bresson's ( I am!), you must stop by the 16th annual LA Art Show, which is there through  Sunday. My mother was there yesterday, and was raving about the exhibit "Rarely/Unseen," a collection of 35 never before seen prints by Henri Cartier-Bresson. The collection was curated by Peter Fetterman, and if you miss it I believe you can still see some of the prints at his gallery in Santa Monica at Bergamont Station.
She had just seen his Documentary a few days previous, and apparently many of the prints in the documentary are at the Show.
This reminded me of what a huge fan I am. I went on You Tube, where there are several excerpts from the documentary that you can see...what an intriguing man!
