Marc Riboud PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Marc Riboud free pdf Photographer Marc Riboud has captured some of the most iconic images of the twentieth century, from painters at work on the Eiffel Tower, balanced like dancers on the powerful metal girders, to a young woman protesting against the Vietnam war, facing down a barrage of rifles with a flower in her hand. Marc Riboud took his first photographs at the age of fourteen with his father's Vest Pocket Kodak. Eager to investigate the complexities of contemporary reality, Riboud worked for the legendary Magnum agency, alongside Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and Chim (David Seymour). Starting in 1955, he traveled all over the world, from Nepal to Alaska, and Mexico to Algeria, his camera always at the ready. While many of his shots reveal the anguish of war, others capture the fleeting delights of a swim in a sun-dappled river or children learning to whistle in a Shanghai street. Published to coincide with the first major retrospective of Riboud's work since 1985, opening in Paris at the MEP (Maison European de la Photographie) in March 2004, this is the first work in English devoted to the career of this outstanding chronicler of the modern world.
