Photographer Marc Riboud will be signing books and lecturing during the opening for his show, Marc Riboud Photographs, at the U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism Center for Photography on March 12, 2010 from 6-8:30pm – the event is free.

Riboud met Henri Cartier Bresson and Robert Capa in France in 1953 and joined the Magnum photo agency. He traveled the world extensively and in 1956 was one of the first European photographers to travel and photograph in China.

On his website you can find some of his iconic photographs, including one of a worker painting the Eiffel Tower in Paris in 1953. Another of his famous images depicts an Vietnam war protester outside of the Pentagon in 1967 holding a flower while facing an ominous line of soldiers with guns leveled.

You can see more of Riboud’s outstanding work on his website.

It is sure to be an interesting exhibit and lecture. The show is currently open and runs through May 1, 2010.

Reception, lecture and booksigning
Reception: 6:00-7:00 PM
Public Lecture: 7:00-8:30 PM
On Exhibition: February 9, 2010 thru May 1, 2010.
Location: 105 North Gate Hall, Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley, Hearst & Euclid, Berkeley, CA 94704

Rather than a profession,
photography has always been a passion for me,
a passion closer to an obsession.
