Since the mid 1920s to 1950, no photographs of Sri Aurobindo were taken. In April 1950 the famous French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, came to Sri Aurobindo Ashram and asked the Mother to permit him to take Sri Aurobindo’s photographs. When the Mother gave him permission, Henri Cartier-Bresson took a number of photographs of the various activities of the Ashram and also some photographs of the Mother. OnMonday, 24 April 1950he took some photographs of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother giving Darshan.
Today, on the occasion of the Darshan Day, we are sharing with you some of the photographs of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother taken on the Darshan day of24 April 1950by Henri Cartier-Bresson.
With warm regards,
