Photography has deep roots in Montparnasse, as great experimenters like Louis Daguerre and Man Ray lived and worked here. In keeping with this spirit of innovation, Henri Cartier-Bresson, legendary photographer and creator of the Magnum photo agency, opened the HCB foundation in 2003 with Martine Franck and their daughter Melanie to support contemporary photography. The restored 1913 artists' atelier holds three temporary exhibitions each year. Be sure to go to the top
floor to see a small gallery of Cartier-Bresson's own work.
