Pioneer of street photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908–2004), believed "The Decisive Moment"—that split second of genius and inspiration—differentiated the photographer from artists working in mediums such as drawing and painting. The exhibition, curated by Wayne Lempka, displays Cartier-Bresson's work from a time when photography was still a relatively new medium and photographers were often criticized for not having the same discipline and creativity as traditional artists.
