Photos of Moscow and Surroundings
by Marc Riboud, 1960s

During the 1967 anti-Vietnam march outside the Pentagon, a photo was published of a young American girl with a flower who con­fronts the sol­diers with bay­o­nets.

This prominent published photo, which is said to help turn the American public opin­ion against the war in Viet­nam, was taken by one of the most influ­en­tial pho­tog­ra­phers of our time, Marc Riboud.

Marc Riboud, is a cos­mopoli­tan Frenchman, who had travelled exten­sively across the world and in 1960 – 1963 he vis­ited the Soviet Union (USSR). His pho­tos are very sim­ple yet thought pro­vok­ing, and in the course of events of the now defunct country, hold a very spe­cial mean­ing. The Soviet epoch is long gone, but the mem­o­ries are pre­served through his pho­tographs.
