Arnold Newman (1918–2006) has been recognized as the father of “environmental portraiture” though his work can be considered as inheritance of European tradition of portrait painting: “The image had to be a complete visual concept where even the composition could help the mood and offer information reflecting my approach. The surroundings had to add to the understanding of the person. And it wasn’t new for me. Recalling Flemish paintings – a man in the ambience of his cabinet, his paraphernalia spread on the velvet of his table, he’s counting golden coins.

The first decade of the twenty-first century has already passed and today we find 'space' drawing attention increasingly. Both outer space, into which research and development progresses, and artists' expressions of inner space are rapidly expanding/converging to constitute a parallel world. Coinciding with the 2014 space boom, we will look at the field of outer space that has drawn infinitely closer to our daily lives and also the inner space created by artists as a multiverse, surpassing individual cosmologies.

This exhibition invites us to revisit the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, known as the “eye of the century” for his role as a key witness to 20th-century history. For the first time, it reveals all the richness and complexity of his work and the varied nature of his career as a photographer, from his use of the Surrealist aesthetic to photo-reportage and his intimate, late style. As a result, its analysis of the artist’s work goes beyond the concept of the “decisive moment” that brought him fame.

Shaped by ancestry, society, and history, material belongings and body embellishments have always served to communicate an individual’s sense of self; clothing and possessions are the fundamental elements through which self-image is expressed. As an outward expression of one’s inner most sensibilities and subjectivities, people perform their identities and position themselves in relation to the world around them. Influencing how the self is represented and seen, photography plays a significant role in the social and cultural construction of identity.
