Marc Riboud
New York
Medium: Print
Year made: 1987
Born in Lyon in 1923, 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. Riboud has witnessed the atrocities of war firsthand - 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. A two-time recipient of the Overseas Press Club Award, Riboud has also had major retrospective exhibitions at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the International Center of Photography in New York.
