Thanks to a friend, I recently discovered the work of photojournalist Eric Bouvet and it became my coup de ❤️. Eric Bouvet worked for the French photo agency Gamma during the 1980s, and launched his freelance career in 1990. He won multiple awards throughout his long career and covered conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Chechnya, Sudan, Somalia, the former Yugoslavia, Lebanon, Israel, Northern Ireland, Kurdistan, Surinam, Burundi, Libya and Ukraine. He recently published a 40 years anniversary magazine using crow-funding. The format is very unhandy (too big with slippery pages) but the pictures are marvellous and show how he looks at his contemporaries. Covering wars brings with it the sweat, the blood, the tears, the filth of it all. But despite that, Eric Bouvet remains human and he is able to capture the human suffering through the eyes of his models. Fantastic series of pictures. A few questions remain in my mind though: why does a photographer of his talent need crowd-funding to publish a small magazine gathering 40 years of his work? Where are the publishers of books? He would definitely deserve one and a big retrospective of his work. Any taker?
