The Henri Cartier-Bresson 'immagini e parole' exhibition in Rome. If I could spend a morning with three of photos from this exhibition they would be:
A photo shot in Mexico in 1954 of an unkept boy entering a gate of a somewhat unkept home with a framed portrait of a well dressed woman who could pass for his mother, tucked underneath his left arm.
The 1947 downtown photo of New York. In it there is a cat and a man, they both seem to be out of luck, or they could just be looking for a quiet place to sit.
A photo taken in Paris in 1938 of a young man (30s) kissing the hand of a Cardinal.
