The International Photojournalism Center of Perpignan, presents a major exhibition on war photographers: The World Under Our Eyes with photographs by Alizée Lemaoult – What their eyes have seen, Giles Duley – Legacy of War – and Alexandra Boulat – Shards of War .
We have chosen to show you the work of Alexandra Boulat, who covered the conflicts that rocked the former Yugoslavia for 6 years. This exhibition was put together by Alexandra’s niece, Lucie Saada, who, touched by the photos of the War in Ukraine, could not help but make the connection with those of Alexandra and was moved to see that 30 years later, photojournalists found themselves denouncing the same atrocities.
“This exhibition pays tribute to civilians, to these men and women suddenly taken aback by the violence. It also pays tribute to journalists. I believe in the importance of information. Without them, without their courage and their desire to show the truth of the world, we could not confront both the joys and the violence of what surrounds us.” Lucie Saada
