French photographer Marc Riboud isn’t easily categorized, because he’s never specialized in any particular area of photography. There are some recurring themes and stylistic idiosyncrasies in his work, but the pictures fall easily into half a dozen different modes of photography. He describes himself as a “shy” photographer, saying “I was torn between the fear of getting too close to people and another force that egged me on to get a closer look.” Not surprisingly, over the years he has developed some strong opinions about the practice of photography. He takes his cue from René Char, the French poet who advocated people should “foresee as a strategist and act as a primitive.” In other words, He believes a photographer should mentally sketch out the scene in terms of composition, but must also be alert for the happy accident—the gesture, the unexpected element—that turns an ordinary image into something extraordinary. “Surprises of every kind lie in wait for the photographer…they open the eyes and quicken the heartbeat of those with a passion for looking.” [Extract - UTATA]
