On the eve of International Women’s Rights Day, Reporters Without Borders unveils the 60th issue of its “100 photos for freedom of the press” collection, dedicated to the incredible work of Véronique de Viguerie. To be released on March 7th.
Winner of the Paris Match News Gold Visa and the Humanitarian Visa of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in 2018, Véronique de Viguerie is a seasoned photojournalist. Accompanied by her sister feather Manon Querouil-Bruneel (author of the foreword), she is found on all fronts, alongside armed militias of Nigeria, Kurdish fighters against the Islamic State in Iraq, but also convicts of the country. In these intense moments, she found the best angle to bring us powerful and poignant images to discover in this new album.
The album opens with a special issue “Journalists in the sights of narcos”: in Colombia, investigating drug cartels and their networks is a job as indispensable as dangerous.
From April 15 to May 31, RSF presents to the general public the photographs of Véronique de Viguerie on the forecourt of the Gare de Lyon in Paris. This exhibition, free and large format, will allow 10 million monthly travelers to discover the strong themes presented in the album, thanks to the support of Gares & Connexions. The opening will take place on April 15, 2019.
