Looking away: Lartigue, Gruyaert

There is this exhibition starting tomorrow in Sommerset House, London. It is called Cartier-Bresson: A Question of Colour, and deals with the "decisive moment" regarding color photography. Highlight of the exhibition is a couple of never shown before pics of Cartier Bresson.

One of the images, Harry Gruyaert, Morocco, Town of Marrakech (1986), by Harry Gruyaert, reminded me of Lartigue's shot at the set of Aventures de Roi Pausole (1932).
