« A sensitive tribute to this great photographer who knew how to capture the Asian soul!  »

Who is Marc Riboud? Do you know his work ? Marc Riboud is this photograph of a painter swinging on the Eiffel Tower, of a young girl handing a flower to soldiers with outstretched arms, of the demonstrations that shook the world in 1968, of daily life in the Soviet Union. As a teenager, Marc Riboud watches, camera in hand. He did not leave him and joined the Magnum agency in 1953. First in Lyon, his native city, then in Europe and very soon in Iran, India, Japan and China, he multiplied his reports and captured images of multitudes of lives, often far from his own. A privileged witness of the changes in the world, he covers the independences in Algeria and sub-Saharan Africa, the demonstrations against the Vietnam War in New York, the rapid and subversive changes in a China that has become communist and which he has known for 30 years. On the occasion of the bequest of all his work to the museum, the Musée Guimet is organizing the first retrospective of Marc Riboud, who never stopped travelling in Asia throughout his career. The exhibition takes us on a real journey through time, through the keen eye of a committed photographer, reviving in us the images of a turbulent century.
