If you love photographs and you want to see something different in the first capital of Italy, you can’t miss Henri Cartier-Bresson Photographe. It is a very interesting exhibition where you can admire more than a hundred black and white pictures shot by the French artist during his career, between the early 30’s and the end of the 70’s.

You can immediately understand the genius inside the man: Bresson captured a lot of historical and social events, because he was interested in showing the everyday life of ordinary people, such as a prostitute smiling in the street, or happy children playing together. According to Bresson, stolen shots were the only way to have people be spontaneous, communicating better the real essence of life: in fact, the beauty of a photograph lies in the moment when it’s taken.
