Martine Franck 1938-2012

Sadly on the August 16th 2012, Martine Franck passed away at the age of 74.  She had been a member of Magnum photos for 32 years and was the second wife of Henri Cartier-Bresson. Martine Franck was a talented Documentary photographer and specialised in Documentary style portraits of Artists and Marginalised populations.  Although she was less well known than Cartier-Bresson her photography is no less engaging and I particularly like her series in Nepal.  She also visited the North East in the 70's and produced a series of interesting images.

 

Here is a video with Martine talking about her photography.
