About Bruno Barbey
Over the course of his four-decade career as a documentary photographer, former Magnum president Bruno Barbey has journeyed across five continents and covered major political upheavals in France, Poland, Nigeria, Vietnam, the Middle East, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Northern Ireland, Iraq, and Kuwait. Known for his free and harmonious use of color, Barbey rejects the label of ‘war photographer’ and believes photography to be “the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world.” He has frequently worked in Morocco, the country of his childhood; In 1999, the Petit Palais in Paris organized a large exhibition of Barbey's Moroccan photographs from the previous three decades. He has received many awards for his work, including the French National Order of Merit; his photographs have been exhibited internationally and are in numerous museum collections.
Moroccan-French, b. 1941
