Marc Riboud
I comme Image : Un abécédaire photographique

Past: December 15, 2010 → January 30, 2011

This exhibition offers a reinterpretation of Marc Riboud’s work for children and adults. Arranged into an ABC, 26 photographs illustrate the letters of the alphabet. Children and their parents discover how words can become pictures, and how pictures can take them on journeys around the world, both far away and very close to who they are.

A way of looking at the world, the self and others, looking at this ABC is like reading an inventory reflecting what Marc Riboud loved and what he found moving, shocking or amusing. Children might learn the alphabet with his help, but more importantly they will learn how to look at life with a sense of wonder, curious to discover its beauty and its humour.
