Marc Riboud is born in 1923 in Lyon, France. At the Great Exhibition of Paris in 1937 he takes his first pictures with the small Kodak Vest-Pocket his father offered him.

 

In 1953, he publishes his famous ‘Eiffel Tower’s Painter’ photograph in Life magazine and joins Magnum agency after meeting Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa. Robert Capa later sends him to London to see girls and learn English. He doesn’ t learn that much English but photographs intensely.

 

In 1955, he crosses Middle-East and Afghanistan to reach India, where he remains one year. He then heads toward China for a first stay in 1957. After three months in USSR in 1960, he follows the independance movement in Algeria and Western Africa. Between 1968 and 1969 he’s one of the few photographers allowed to travel in South and North Vietnam. In 1976 he becomes president of Magnum and resigns three years later; since the 1980s he keeps travelling at his own tempo.

Marc Riboud published many books, among which the most famous are The Three Banners of China, ed. Robert Laffont, Journal, ed. Denoël, Huang Shan, Capital of Heaven, ed. Arthaud / Doubleday, Marc Riboud In China, ed. Nathan / Harry N. Abrams…

 

Numerous museums trough Europe, as well as United States, China and Japan regularly show his work. He received many awards, among which two Overseas Press Club, the Time-Life Achievement, the Lucie Award and the ICP Infinity Award.
