The photographic oeuvre by Martine Franck (1938–2012) has finally been assembled in this comprehensive volume, featuring in-depth studies, conversations, and a host of previously unpublished images.
The woman who wished to “greet the unexpected” takes us on a chronological journey through her work: feminism, social deprivation and Buddhism join artists, writers and landscapes as subjects that are visited and revisited over the years, scrutinized through the lens of her selfless sensitivity and eye for form. Her celebration of life, the joy of her knowing eye, and her commitment to different causes made Martine Franck a major figure on the international photographic scene.
A co-founder and president of the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson and a member of the Magnum Photos agency, her honesty, her curiosity about the world and her capacity for laughter made her a fully-rounded artist.
