On peut même avoir la chance de gagner un exemplaire de son livre (seulement pour les américains, semble-t-il ��). Quoiqu'il en soit, son article est intéressant et ses suggestions donne le goût d'aller faire un tour à Montréal.

Workers, including children, labor in harsh and dangerous conditions to meet the world’s soaring demand for cobalt, a mineral essential to powering electric vehicles, laptops, and smartphones, according to an investigation by The Washington Post.
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

Un magnifique et troublant reportage sur la filière du cobalt (utilisé dans les piles au lithium). 60% du cobalt utilisé dans les piles que l'on retrouve dans nos cellulaires, ordinateurs et automobiles électriques, proviennent du Congo. Cette industrie entretient la pauvreté et exploite les enfants. À lire!


J'aimerais aussi entendre tous les gens et commentateurs populistes qui critiquent "les médias" (un terme générique qui ne veut rien dire) afin de savoir ce qu'ils pensent de ce reportage. Ils ne pourront pas dire "Pourquoi les médias n'en parlent pas". 


Du grand très grand journalisme!

Another Day Of Life: A Unique Animated Perspective On The Angolan Conflict

Another Day Of Life: A Unique Animated Perspective On The Angolan Conflict | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it
A look at the upcoming animated film, and the Kapuściński book that was its inspiration.
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

"As I see it, it’s wrong to write about people without living through at least a little of what they are living through"

– Ryszard Kapuściński, Another Day of Life.

 

Set during the three months Kapuściński spent in the country in 1975, Another Day of Life follows a reporter seeking the truth about the war, who during a dangerous journey through Angola encounters situations and events that force him to change his attitude towards his work and his life. On his expedition, the reporter realizes that he must become more than an observer to understand the real meaning of the things he witnesses.

 

Animation comprises 60 minutes of the film, playing a double function: firstly, to recount historical events while conveying the surreal realities of the war in Angola. Additionally, the broad creative potential of animation allows the filmmakers to shift between the real world and an imaginary one, keeping viewers in suspense and unsure what they’re seeing is real or inside the journalist’s mind. The film is supplemented with live documentary footage, filling in the missing pieces of the puzzle.

Apartment featured in one of the most memorable images of the second world war restored to its former glory
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

Un texte poignant! À la fin de la 2e guerre mondiale, Robert Capa a pris une photo devenue célèbre: un jeune soldat américain qu'il venait tout juste de photographier sur le balcon d'un appartement de Leipzig, se fait descendre par un sniper allemand. Cet article nous raconte l'histoire de cette maison et comment un groupe d'Allemands passionnés d'histoire ont réussi à faire éviter à la "Capa House" les pics du démolisseur. On a même les impressions de la dame, qui aujourd'hui, vit dans ce même appartement.

La mise en scène de photo est absolument inacceptable en photojournalisme. Malheureusement, beaucoup trop y ont recours. Je l'ai vu pendant les élections à Madagascar (par des photographes d'agence filaires comme AFP, REUTERS) autant que dans la couverture d'événements d'actualité au Québec.

Is Black and White Photography a Gimmick? | PhotoShelter Blog

Is Black and White Photography a Gimmick? | PhotoShelter Blog | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it
In an age where digital photography is ubiquitous, and post processing allows everyman to bump saturation levels and create hyper-real images, black and white
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:
“I never see this red in my life.” Colour itself was a kind of lie. “It was a huge exaggeration — when I saw my colour picture, I was much more interested in the colour than in the personality or dignity of the person. How can I go to a person and make them my story, and I don’t feel the story in my photographs? Of course, black and white is an abstraction, but from the brightest white to the darkest black what you have is greys, and these greys are what I had in my mind when I took the pictures.” - Sebastiao Salgado

"When you lose your land, you lose your identity," says Magnum photographer Larry Towell
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:
Le sujet est sérieux. Assez pour qu'un grand nom du photojournalisme se rende sur place. Et quand Larry Towell et Magnum - la coopérative de photojournalisme fondée par Capa - font un reportage sur une situation, Time magazine le publie. Dommage que les photos produites ici sont très banales. Du moins elles ne sont pas à la hauteur du talent de Towell. / The subject is serious. Enough for a big name of photojournalism to go there. And when Larry Towell and Magnum - the photojournalism cooperative founded by Capa - report on a situation, Time magazine publishes it. Too bad the photos produced here are very mundane.

The Bearer of Light by REZA – Fotojajs | Explore & document the World | Scoop.it

For nearly 20 years, the legendary Afghan resistant Massoud led his people, first against the Russians, and later against the Taliban, in order to liberate his country. Fifteen years after his assassination on September 9, 2001, this is my tribute to a man of rare intelligence and profound sensibility.

Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

Le récit (en anglais) et les magnifiques photos, des années où le photographe Reza a côtoyé le commandant Massoud, un Afghan qui était en voie de changer le cours de l'histoire. C'est d'ailleurs pour ça qu'il a été assassiné.
