"Go to London, see the girls and learn English" said Capa as a welcome to Magnum finding him too shy. Marc Riboud reaches Leeds in 1954, he does not meet the girls and does not learn English. The greyness and the sadness of this industrial town which seemed stuck in the 19th century reminded him of Lyon where he was born. He returns to London, gives his films to a picture-editor which, before even greeting him, declares to him: "Capa is dead". Under shock, Riboud returns to Paris. And there he forgets all: Leeds, films and girls remained in a dream. Until, mysteriously, the photographs reappeared today, to prove him that he really saw and photographed Leeds fifty years ago.
