At 91 years old, Marc Riboud is one of the last giants of photography. Who doesn’t know his 1961 photograph of a young woman in Washington holding out a flower to a soldier’s bayonet? The image epitomizes the protest of young Americans against the Vietnam war. Even today it remains one of the most famous photographs in the world. Lyon, Riboud’s hometown, is currently paying him tribute with the exhibition Premiers déclics at Le Plateau, the exhibition space of the regional council, through February 21st, 2015.
