A member of Magnum, Marc Riboud has travelled the world, from Europe to the Middle East and from Vietnam to the United States. Repelled by violence, indifferent to the pursuit of ‘events’, yet irresistibly drawn by the desire to see, he is a reporter under the spell of life itself.

‘Details his career and the key moments in history that he was witness to through his lens’ – Independent on Sunday
‘Places the images, as well as Riboud, in a crucial context’– Amateur Photographer
‘A welcome new addition to the eminent Photofile series, with a disarming and well-written introduction by Riboud himself’– Black & White Photography Magazine

Whether covering the Cultural Revolution or the Soviet Union before perestroika, he waits for the inner truth to ‘rise to the surface of things’. These photographs reveal his intense awareness of the innate power of each image.
