First published in 1999, Bruno Barbey’s Photopoche book gathers together 80 photographs considered some of the most iconic from his most famous works: The Italians, Morocco, May 1968, Poland, and other journalistic reportages from around the world. Combined, the stories build a comprehensive and exhaustive exploration of the life’s work of the photographer.

The newly republished book has been re-edited by the legendary curator and publisher Robert Delpire, who has published dozens of well-known books, including the Magnum book In Our Time. The book also features a foreword by French writer Annick Cojean, who describes Barbey as “an author, rather than a reporter. A long-term photographer rather than a traveler.”
