‘The photograph is completely abstracted from life, yet it looks like life. That is what has always excited me about photography’ Richard Kalvar
A member of the celebrated Magnum agency, Richard Kalvar has spent more than four decades building up a diverse body of work that is characterized by a finely honed sense of observation. Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1944, he has travelled all over the world, capturing fleeting details and moments of absurdity. His images suggest glimpses into untold stories, reflecting an idiosyncratic approach to the act and practice of photography.
