Retrospective “Marc Riboud, Histoire possibles” at the National Asian Arts Museum – Guimet
The exhibition dedicated to Marc Riboud celebrates the legacy of his archive to the national collections, more precisely to Guimet Museum which he loved so much.
A photographer more than a reporter, Marc Riboud left thousands of photographs (negatives, color slides, prints), many of them taken in Asia. Who, among us, cannot help but identify to this or that photograph, always familiar, and get the feeling to flip, through this album of the world, into his own family album?
From the immediate after-war to the timeless Huang Shan Chinese mountains, this exhibitions invites to a journey of more than 50 years on every continent’s roads, with a favoured focus on Asia.
