The Fondation HCB presents London, a new selection of photographs by Sergio Larrain (1931-2012), reworked by the artist himself.

In the winter of 1958-1959, the Chilean photographer traveled to the British capital, producing a collection of photos in which, sensitive to encountered scenery and light, the artist’s imagination exceeds both the subject and frame of the image.

During this trip, Sergio Larrain made a stop in Paris where he met Henri Cartier-Bresson, allowing him to join the Magnum Photos agency.
