Bruno Barbey photographs a village outside the town of Rissani, Morocco, in 2000. This vibrant color contact sheet features the architecture of the town walls and through outlying ruins. Caught in between is Barbey’s subject, an elderly Moroccan villager, lying on a bright red rug on the earth, amidst the ground and stones in the village.

Barbey began his relationship with Magnum Photos in 1964, becoming a full member in 1968, the year he documented the political unrest and student riots in Paris. A decade later, between 1979 and 1981, he photographed Poland at a turning point in its history, publishing his work in the widely acclaimed book Poland. He served as Magnum vice president for Europe in 1978 and 1979 and as President of Magnum International from 1992 – 1995. In 1999 the Petit Palais, Paris, organized a large exhibition of photographs that Barbey had taken in Morocco during the previous three decades. He has numerous awards for his work, including the French National Order of Merit; his photographs have been exhibited internationally as part of a several museum exhibits.
