Guided tour of the Marc Riboud: Conscious Traveller. Concerned Photographer. exhibition
You are invited to join us at the regular guided tour of the overview photographic exhibition by Marc Riboud, who went down in the history of photography with both his iconic images and pioneering photographic travels to the countries of the Far East, when they were still almost inaccessible to photographers.
From Zazou, the playful painter of the Eiffel Tower, to a young American activist who in protest against the Vietnam War stood in front of a row of bayonets with a flower in her hand, and through various portraits of world leaders in the decisive historical moments, to the nameless individuals that Riboud’s mindful eye had noticed and recorded on photographic film, with empathy and often with a lucid and humorous note – all of these are photographic images written in our collective memory, exhibited and kept by the most important galleries and museums of the world. Riboud’s photojournals have been published in all the important magazines. He was among the early members of Magnum Photos – and although in 1979 he decided to take an independent path, he remained faithful to the common ideas of Magnum’s founders, who in 1953 accepted the younger photographer in a way that gave him enough space to develop his own authorial expression in his work.
Guided tours of the exhibition in the English language are held every Saturday at 4.30 p.m., guided tours in in the Slovenian language are held every Sunday at 4.30 p.m.
