Magnum photographer Marc Riboud has been singled out by The Village Voice as the one figure who “may be the most accomplished photographer of his generation”— that remarkable group whose collective vision reinvented photography. “Riboud was discovered at 28 in 1951 by Henri Cartier-Bresson” and shares that legendary photographer’s “reliance on intuition and devotion to lyrical moments” (Village Voice). “He combines an unerring feel for pictorial composition… with a sense of mission as witness to social injustice” (Publishers Weekly). This is Marc Riboud’s and his wife Catherine’s documentation of the initial rejection and final acceptance their daughter Clémence, born with Down’s Syndrome. Text in French. From the collection of Peter Turnley, acclaimed photojournalist for Newsweek, Life and Harper’s Magazine, who has covered “almost every important international news event of the last 15 years” (New York Times).
