Product Description

About the Author

Born in 1923, Marc Riboud, an engineer by training, has devoted the past fifty years of his life to photography. At the age of thirteen, Riboud's father gave him his own World War I Vest Pocket Kodak, the aged and dented camera that Riboud used to take his very first photographs. Riboud's fortuitous meeting in 1952 with Henri Cartier-Bresson, the man who was later to become his "salutary tyrant" and mentor, led to his membership in the
legendary Magnum agency. He has received several awards in both the U.S. and Europe, and his photographs are some of the most iconic images of our time. Marc Riboud has been the subject of
numerous individual and collective exhibitions in New York, Paris, and Japan. This book was published to coincide with a major retrospective of Riboud's fifty years of photography held at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris
from March to October 2004.

Great Photography April 19 2010
By Mike SF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I first found Marc Riboud's photos a few years ago while my wife and I lived in Beijing, China. As I've learned more about him and his work, I've been amazed at the number of places he has photographed and the strength of his work. At 87, he is still traveling the world, lecturing, being present at major retrospectives of his photos, and still maintaining his life-long interest in the world and what's happening in it.

As the title suggests, this book shows 50 years of photography. Fifty great years. I'm very glad I bought it, and am enjoying every minute spent with it.
