Marc Riboud (1923 – 2016) was a French photographer, best known for his extensive reports on the Far East: The Three Banners of China, Face of North Vietnam, Visions of China, and In China. In 1953 his photograph of a painter on the Eiffel Tower appeared in Life Magazine. This was his first publication. Invited by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa he joined Magnum Photos. In 1955, he traveled by road through the Middle East and Afghanistan to India and stayed for one year. In 1957 he traveled from Calcutta to China making the first of what were many long stays. His road trip to the East ended in Japan where he found the subject for what became his first book, Women of Japan. This print is beautifully mounted and framed in a black wood frame.
