I like to think about this lecture as a tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson, this unique artist who was named “the eye of the XXth Century”. Cartier-Bresson is famous for his concept of the “Decisive Moment” in photography, but he was much more than this. He established the foundations of modern street-photography, and revealed the visual relations between the “Geometry” – as he said – Beauty, and Truth. Even if he never considered himself as a Master, he will be remembered as one by many generations of photographers.
A lecture about the famous photographer Elliott Erwitt and his particular way to link humor with photography. Erwitt’s photographs are a manifestation of his love for the human kind, but also a corrosive look at our modern times. Those photographs reminds us what is really essential in human life….. simplicity and humanity. Erwitt philosophy of life can be perceived in this quote: “I’m not a serious photographer like many of my contemporaries. That is to say, I am serious about not being serious.”
A journey for discovering Tibetan Buddhism, through an encounter with the monks, the Temples and the monasteries of the Dharamsala region in North India, The residence of the Dalai-lama and the Tibetan government in exile.

The land of the Pharaohs has not yet unveiled all its mysteries, something is still present in the ruins of its past. Each photograph is a bridge between the mystery of the past and the present moment, and each of these bridges invites us to follow its path. Discovering the mysteries of Ancient Egypt- it’s a little bit like discovering oneself.
