Raymond Depardon, born in France in 1942, began taking photographs on his family farm in Garet at the age of 12. Apprenticed to a photographer-optician in Villefranche-sur-Saône, he left for Paris in 1958. He joined the Dalmas agency in Paris in 1960 as a reporter, and in 1966 he co-founded the Gamma agency, reporting from all over the world. From 1974 to 1977, as a photographer and filmmaker, he covered the kidnap of a French ethnologist, François Claustre, in northern Chad. Alongside his photographic career, he began to make documentary films: 1974, Une Partie de Campagne and San Clemente. In 1978, Depardon joined Magnum. This image shows a Libyan truck transporting people between Chad and Libya: “‘The truck left the palm grove this morning before daylight. The women sit well up front, the men sit behind. I have often ridden on these trucks to go up north and out of the desert.” Please note that this price is for an unsigned poster only. Please allow 1 – 3 weeks for shipping.
