About the French Magnum photographer, Marc RIBOUD (1923-2106)

Marc RIBOUD photographed the 1937 World's Fair in Paris as a 14-year-old with a second-hand Kodak pocket camera. He was politically active in the French resistance movement from 1943 to 1945, after which he studied mechanical engineering until 1948 and then worked as an engineer in Lyon. In 1952, his decision to work as a freelance photographer took him to Paris, where he met photojournalists Robert CAPA and Henri CARTIER-BRESSON and joined their newly founded Magnum photo agency. From 1954 he lived and worked in London. In 1955 he became a full member of Magnum and began a series of photographic expeditions to the Far East. In 1957 Riboud, documented China, dominated by the Mao regime. From 1959 to 1973, he was vice president at Magnum Europe, becoming its president in 1975. From 1980 he worked at Magnum only sporadically as a 'contributing photographer'.
