The international photographic industry this week celebrates its brightest stars with the announcement of the annual Sony World Photography Awards.

This year, the special accolade will go to a veteran French photographer Marc Riboud - a former collaborator of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa - for a lifetime of widely recognized and critically acclaimed work.

Ribaud is best known for his 1967 image of a girl holding a flower in front of a row of soldiers with raised rifles during a demonstration against the war in Vietnam.

"It is fitting that the [SWPAs] presents the Lifetime Achievement Award to a man who has dedicated over 50 years to capturing life in all corners of the world, from China’s cultural revolution through to everyday life in Paris,’ said Scott Gray, managing director of the World Photography Awards.

A close friend of Riboud says that the career of the 85-year-old artist is far from over - in fact, he is still very active, "with his camera permanently welded to his side … always looking for the next picture."

The ceremony will take place on April 16th at the Palais des Festival in Cannes. A retrospective of Marc Riboud’s work will be one of the highlights of the weeklong celebration of photography.
