Bruno Barbey is a photojournalist that works for Magnum agency. This exhibition is dedicated to his work that covers nearly half a century.

With a lot of sensibility he has never missed an even in History but was never looking after a sensational scoop. His pictures are taken with humanity, not too far, not too close.

He often comes back to places he likes and was luck to be often at the right place at the right time to capture the great events that have shaken the last half of the 20th century.

He covered the 6 Days War in 1967, the events of May 68, Vietnam in 1971, China during the Cultural Revolution or in Cambodia when Phnom Penh was surrounded by the Khmer Rouge in 1973...

His photographs reflects an explorer and a poet mind. The exhibition displays 55 years of career and 150 black and white and color prints. A retrospective that shows his long term work in reportage and journalism.
