“Mer de sable”, so Cartier-Bresson fell in love with photography (and with the beautiful Caresse)

In the forest, a glimpse of desert, sand and rocks suddenly opens up among the oaks, elms, corks, beech trees of the Oise woods, a wooded region 150 kilometers from Paris. A French guy with a camera hanging around his neck trudges behind a couple of Americans, casual and smiling. One click, a stolen kiss. These are the very first scenes of a project dedicated to Henri Cartier-Bresson’s youth, which will soon become a film entitled, precisely, «Mer de sable», already appeared in a short film available on Sky Arte – on demand. This is the work of the photographer and director Malea, which was presented Monday in Rome by the CEO of Ballandi Arts, Mario Paloschi, in the sumptuous headquarters of the Besso Foundation. In the building furnished with works of art and old books, formerly the residence of the writer and entrepreneur Marco Besso, guests were able to admire some photos of the author printed on glass and gold, using a photographic technique that was popular in the times of Cartier-Bresson. Also present at the event, promoted by American Express, was the director of Rai Cinema, Paolo Del Brocco
