Richard Kalvar was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1944. In 1965 he interrupted his literature studies, and with absolutely no knowledge of or interest in photography, managed to be hired as an assistant by French fashion photographer Jérôme Ducrot. He moved to Paris in 1970, and helped found the Viva agency. In 1975 he joined Magnum Photos and became a full member in 1977. He has served as president and is currently vice-president of the Paris office. A major retrospective of his work was shown at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in 2007.
