Legend Photography | Marc Riboud

Born in Lyon, France, photographer Marc Riboud is best known for his extensive reports on the East. In 1957, he was one of the first European photographers ever to be allowed into China.

Firsthand, Riboud has witnessed to the atrocities of war – photographing from both the Vietnam and the American sides of the Vietnam War, as well as the apparent degradation of a culture repressed from within – China during the years of Chairman Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

His photographs have appeared in numerous magazines, including Life, Géo, National Geographic, Paris Match, and Stern. Twice he’s won the Overseas Press Club Award, and he’s had major retrospective exhibitions at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the International Center of Photography in New York.

A pho­to­graphic exhibit titled “Ret­ro­spec­tive” is currently showing some of Riboud’s best work at the Young Gallery in Brus­sels, Belgium from now till Octo­ber 11, 2011. If you’re in or around that area, make sure to check it out.
