Bruno Barbey, born in Morocco, has French and Swiss dual nationalities. He studied photography and graphic arts at the École des Arts et Métiers in Vevey, Switzerland. In 1961-1964 he photographed the Italians, perceiving them as protagonists of a “theatrical world,” with the aim of capturing the spirit of a nation. Barbey began his relationship with Magnum Photos in 1964. He served as Magnum vice president for Europe in 1978 to 1979 and as President of Magnum International from 1992 to 1995.
