Duncan Miller Gallery is proud to announce its upcoming photographic exhibition "Marc Riboud - The World. His Lens." The exhibit runs from March 1 - April 30, 2006. The 83-year-old Paris-based Riboud will come to Los Angeles to attend his reception on Wednesday, March 15, 2006. Riboud, a renowned original member of the famed photojournalism agency Magnum, has photographed throughout the world. This show features work from France, Afghanistan, Vietnam, China, Ghana, Japan, California and other places.
Known for his strong and graphic compositions, a sense of compassion for the human spirit is also present in Marc Riboud images. His work can be found in major private and museum collections throughout the world, including the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.
At age 13, Riboud (1923- ) received his first camera as a gift from his father—a Vest Pocket Kodak. He’s been taking pictures ever since. Born in Lyon, France, he moved to Paris to pursue his interest in photography. Invited to join Magnum as an associate at the same time as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, Riboud went on to travel the world with his camera. He is renowned for his documentation of the East, particularly China and Vietnam. Riboud’s images have appeared in Life, National Geographic, Paris-Match, and Der Stern.
