The Photographer: Into War-Torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders by Emmanuel Guibert

May 2009

THE PHOTOGRAPHER is a stunningly original work that tells the story of Didier Lefèvre's 1986 journey with Doctors Without Borders into Afghanistan through photos and graphic panels. Written and drawn by Emmanuel Guibert and designed by Frederic Lemercier, the dramatic and personal story of Lefèvre's journey will both inform and haunt you. Lefèvre's photos are dramatic essays unto themselves, but set as they are to punctuate the drawings and story, readers will feel they are in the story, not merely watching from the sidelines. Guibert's work portrays both Lefèvre's triumphs and anguishes, and he paces the book wonderfully.
