Lot description
Image size is 11 x 16.5 inches (27.9 x 41.9 cm). Paper size is 15.5 x 19.5 (39.4 x 49.5 cm).

This is a later print (late 1980's) of the most iconic image by Marc Riboud.

Marc Riboud was given his first camera as a 13-year-old boy in 1936. 16 years later, after serving in the French Resistance, he traveled to Paris to meet Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, the founders of Magnum Photos. His ability to capture fleeting moments in life through powerful compositions was already apparent, and this skill was to serve him well for decades to come. He has twice won the Overseas Press Club Award (1967 and 1971), and has exhibited at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and the International Center of Photography and Metropolitan Museum in New York.
