Paris : Marc Riboud, A Wanderer Through Asia


As part of the Photo Saint Germain festival, the gallery Le Voleur d’images is presenting an exhibition dedicated to Marc Riboud, focused on his photographs taken in Asia. A Wanderer Through Asia brings together some twenty prints taken during this celebrated photographer’s long career in India, Cambodia, Nepal, China and Vietnam.

I often think that I am not made for travelling”. Marc Riboud

A free man, curious about the world, a “wanderer” rather than a “traveller” as he himself puts it, Marc Riboud has always looked for the pleasures of life, the life on the streets, a spur-of-the-moment portrait, a misty landscape and a thousands other things…  No sooner had he signed up with Magnum than he took off. This would be, in 1955, his first trip to Asia: India, where he stayed for a year, and China, for an extraordinary stay where he was surprised to find himself the only western journalist present during the time of the Great Leap Forward. This was followed by a series of assignments in Vietnam and several stays in Cambodia.
