The way Cartier-Bresson's images were showed at the MOMA was that they were showed almost as the story of his life. Towards the end, there was a wall of portraits, that really stood out to me. In every new room there was a short paragraph about him or the photos that set the mood perfectly.  There was one at the show that I really liked that had an old man in the background holding a small white bird, and a few more birds sitting on a birdcage in the foreground. He captured it so well, showing everything he needed too.

Exposed showed images from many different artists, and from different times both showing older and newer images. Through Exposed you learned many different things experiencing someones life by just looking at a photograph. What makes this exhbit so special is that it shows things that are usually noticed.
