Bruno Barbey is a Moroccan-born French-Swiss photographer whose relationship with Magnum Photos first began in 1964. In a career spanning more than five decades, Bruno has taken his camera around all five continents and published more than 30 books.
On 20 July, the eminent photographer will be joining us for an online discussion. We’ll be talking about his career, about what connects photography and theatre, about his first visit to the USSR, and the impressions he gained from his time spent in Russia and Poland in the late 1960s. We’ll be asking him why he finds photographing beauty more interesting than working as a war correspondent, and about the importance of colour in photography.
The event will be moderated by street and documentary photographer Ilya Shtutsa. Ilya is a teacher at the Fotografika Academy and member of Observe, an international photography collective.
The discussion – which will be held as a Zoom conference – is free to join. Advance registration is required, and you will also need to have downloaded the Zoom app. An hour before the event is scheduled to begin you will be sent a link to the email address provided during registration, which will allow you to join the conference. The event will be held in French, with simultaneous interpretation into Russian.
The event forms part of Manege’s complementary programme, and is taking place with the support of the Institut Français and the Fotografika Academy of Documentary and Art Photography.
