"…Martine Franck was born in Belgium, but spent her early childhood years in America and England. Afterwards she was educated in Spain and France, and was a woman who embraced an international point of view from an early age. From 1965 she made her start as a freelance photographer. On the one hand she displayed her works and on the other she endeavored to create and establish of a photo agency, thus she contributed widely to the establishment of her field of activity, photography. In 1980 she became a member of the international photographers group, Magnum Photos, and continued to widen her activities. In 2002 she established the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, thus fulfilling her obligation to leave to posterity the great work of her husband who had been the 20th century's greatest photographer. These were all achievement that no one but Martine could have accomplished. From the very first time I met her the image did not change; Martine was always stylish. She had a dignity that manifested itself forcefully in her straight backbone. That was her personal style of living. Her leadership was probably innate, but there is no doubt that it was supported by the profound education she received since childhood…" Extrait de "A Rich, Meaningful Eye" par Yoshitomo Kajikawa.
