French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson traveled the world for decades capturing people, places and history as a journalist, and in the process, helped define photography as an art form. His legacy is now on display in an exhibit called ‘Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century’, a retrospective of 300 photographic works at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Tuesday on the NewsHour, Jeffrey Brown explores the exhibit with curator Peter Galassi. You can watch an extended interview with Galassi after the jump.
