A new article for my project ''THE MAN BEHIND THE HELMET'' is available, "Incendies''

When I first initiated this project, there were two categories of events I was very keen to see: childbirth en route to the hospital, in the rescue vehicle, and at least one fire. Let’s kill the suspense immediately; to my great disappointment and the vast relief of the men, the child never came. The delivery of a baby into the world is a potentially difficult situation, fraught with many unknown factors, for the mother and for the child. It can easily get out of hand and turn into a very serious problem. It left me with the fires, and I had the opportunity to follow my team in several occasions.

Fire is a really impressive monster. A primitive, destructive force, which devours more or less anything it touches. Furniture, paints, chemicals, plastics. Everything that is part of our environment.

At the beginning, I failed to see why it inspires such passion in almost all the firefighters, and especially the reason of the flicker of excitement I saw in their eyes. I asked them many questions before witnessing my first fire. I truly wanted to understand why they seemed so filled with wonder when they left or came back from an intervention, or showed me some pictures of “their” fires. The most frequent answer was that fire is really the most important of all the topics studied during their training, theoretical or practical. Of course, I understood the logic of this answer, but something was missing. This could not totally explain the ...

A new article for my project ''THE MAN BEHIND THE HELMET'' is available, "A rotten day…''

When I first started on my project, my initial idea was to show the man as he is rather than the technical sides of the interventions. The sensitive human being and his feelings in front of the situations he meets in the exercise of his duties; not the archetype of the firefighter. Discover these heroes, who do their very best with what they have. By following them, by living by their side, I knew that I would inevitably be confronted to some difficult situations.

For me, the most terrible events happened during a particular and unique day. A never-ending and very painful day, which memories haunted me during several weeks. My worse day as a “fireman”…

Everything began as routine. Call of duty at 8 in the morning, first gathering for assignments, assorted with some instructions, such as which streets to avoid because of roadwork or possible congestion. After that, inventory of the equipment and disinfection and sterilization of the rescue vehicles. As usual in these moments of preparation and waiting, everybody was in good humor and the jokes flew fast. At 8:45, our beepers informed us of an emergency at the exit of an underground station near the opera house of Lyon, with a code meaning “thoracic pains”. What you have to know is...

THE DELIGHTS OF THE FALL

The red leaves covering the ground in the fall are as many ideas that will take root in children's imaginations. They will become palaces or dream castles, mountains to climb or beds for those who at night will not want to sleep, having nestled in their make-believe ones during the day...

For the third time, E. has appeared in front of my camera. After the tutus, princess costumes and Christmas hat, we have decided (with her parents) to do something more natural both in terms of dress and poses...

A new article for my project ''THE MAN BEHIND THE HELMET'' is available, "The K-9 Units''

When I first arrived at the fire station, in the very beginning of my project, I was far from imagining that I would one day have the great opportunity to witness emergency drills like the NRBC-E, or follow the men of the GRIMP or of the K-9 units.

We arranged to meet on a demolition lot. Several square meters of rubble and ruined buildings, brought down or on the brink of collapse. An ideal training setting for the firemen, and an excellent playground for their four-legged companions.

It is all very well to say that these dog handlers share an incredible bond with their animals. But to watch them is another...

A new article of my project, ''THE HUMAN FACE OF SCIENCE'' is available. Let me introduce 6 new scientists

Jan Bergmann

Jan Bergmann is one of the scientist to whom I specifically asked to not bring anything. And for him, it was a relief, for he didn’t know what to chose. I was not surprised: I know him quite well. I had already... Rest and picture here.

Wee Siong Goh

We had agreed to meet one evening, and he was supposed to be the last of the day. Usually, I need 5 to 15 minutes to make a picture. It depends on if I already know the person, and on what she... Rest and picture here.

Nikolay Rozhkov

Elena Rozhkova

Nicholas Tonks

At the very start of my project, many scientists told me that I had to meet one of the PI, very keen about cars and motor sports, who even was the proud owner of a muscle car. So I simply went to... Rest and picture here.

Xin Zhou was still a student when she came to sit for me. She arrived accompanied by one of her numerous fluffy animals. Considering the number of synthetically-stuffed friends she possesses, I... Rest and picture here.

A new page with video & pictures is available in the Portrait section: La Compagnie Du Renard Masqué. (Clic here to see the page)

The members of the Compagnie Du Renard Masqué (Company of the Masked Fox), a historical fencing association from Lyon, France, asked me to highlight their talents of duellists. They practice the art of swashbuckling and theatrical reenactment, with true weapons and Renaissance or grand siècle era costumes, tailor made on patterns and fashions of these ancient times.

We had the great opportunity to work in two settings: the Museum of Miniature and Cinema of Lyon, on one of the sets of the film Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, and at the Palais de la Bourse, a building inaugurated in 1860, by Emperor Napoléon III and Empress Eugénie.

The two sessions, made on a same subject but in two different places gave me the opportunity to apply two distinct treatments: the first, very graphic and inspired of the comic strip; the second more turned towards a cinematographic approach.

NRBC-E Drill
During the summer of 2014, just when I was following my first guard duties, I had the luck to be invited to watch an extensive exercise involving the firefighters, the forces of the French Gendarmerie and police and the hospitals. It was a drill focused on the risk of explosions: Nuclear, Radiological, Biological, Chemical. The scenario was... Rest and pictures here.

Mikel Zaratiegui

Silvia Fenoglio is totally and truly Italian: she laughs a lot, talks almost all the time, very quickly, and her hands follow her train of thoughts. For this project, every person was supposed to bring an object representing his or her passions and interests. But I didn’t Rest and picture here.

Jonathan Ipsaro
If Jonathan Ipsaro, whom everyone calls “Jon”, had not become a scientist, I think he could have been an artist. Musician, singer, actor, and above all dancer, he is gifted for almost everything. Very well... Rest and picture here.

Josef Callarco
“Jo” Callarco is a movie buff; I would even say a movie fanatic. He literally devours one film after the other. He can spend hours debating cinema, movies, story arcs, trilogies. Start a discussion about... Rest and picture here.
