On the trail of international reporting, the paths of photographers, journalists, doctors and humanitarians criss-cross on their assignments. We are in Lebanon, in 1982, when the photographer, José Nicolas got to know Bernard Kouchner. The Doctors of the World adventure began. José Nicolas followed this epic in several war-torn countries at the time, some others still do today. The exhibition follows his journey among the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, the boat people in the China Sea, the communities in Lebanon and the Peshmerga of Kurdistan.
This exhibition at the Argentic gallery in Paris is the witness to a time where photographers invested as much as the medical teams on journeys that lasted for weeks and with whom they shared the ideal of helping our fellow humans who are in great difficulty, often at risk to their lives, and not being embarrassed about their right to intervene…
