This Friday, March 12th, sees the official opening of the “Marc Riboud Photographs” exhibition at the Graduate School of Journalism Center for Photography at UC Berkeley.

Marc Riboud is considered one of the great photojournalists of the 20th century. He joined the Magnum photo agency in Paris in the early 1950s and traveled extensively, working with Magnum founders Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa.

Riboud’s photographs will be on exhibition at North Gate Hall through May 1. See more events associated with the Photojournalism department of the J-School here.
