This humble photoreporter established himself at Paris Match in 1977, he was 22. He never left the magazine Paris Match, which is a testament to his loyalty. His work brought him to the deserts of Eritrea, the jungle of Cambodia, El Salvador, Rwanda, Bosnia and Lebanon. He shot stories spanning from the mole children of Columbia to prostitutes in Amsterdam. Over the course of his career he traveled the planet, reporting on human struggle on the four corners of the Earth. With modesty and humility, his work covered the pages of Paris Match. His images were poignant and moving. Many were published the world over. He also reported on Mother Nature: volcanic eruptions in the Caribbean, fires in Corsica, and astonishing images of the length of the Equator.

You often called us to draw our attention to the work of a young photographer that you had picked up on. You were always willing to offer advice. It was just one of the many aspects of your generosity.
