Algeria, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia… Marc Riboud is a travelling photographer. In 1957, he went further down the road to India and visited China for the first time. Since then, he has continued to wander across this vast country, whether immortalizing the Cultural Revolution of 1966 or the wonders of nature, as in this hazy view of the “Yellow Mountain”, a recurrent motif in Chinese painting and literature. In this vision surging upward out of the mist, one recognizes Marc Riboud’s signature ability to capture the ephemeral in powerful compositions full of grace.
