Marc Riboud: Photographs at Home and Abroad

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Riboud is not a traveler on the run or an observer pressed for time. He has always preferred extended stays to tours-on-the-go, patient contemplation of what he sees to "passing through". He spent 1958 in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Japan. In 1959 a leisurely motor trip took him from Alaska to Acapulco. The following year, he made the Soviet Union his home. The time he spent in China during this period added up to more than a year. He also witnessed the war in Vietnam from both the Vietnamese side and the American side.
Cambodia and Bangladesh, Czechoslovakia and Israel, Watergate and Cuba, Tokyo and Houston - just a restless eye in perpetual motion, one of those paparazzi who go leapfrogging all over the world from one disaster to another? No, because if there is one thing in Riboud's development that becomes increasingly patent, it is precisely the opposite tendency: concentration, deliberation, the cultivation of a probing eye.
