Ilakaka, Dangerous Saphirre - Images | Marc-Andre Pauze | Documentary photography | Scoop.it
Along RN7, the most visited road, in the south of Madagascar, there is a town where few tourist ever stop except for taking the "Taxi-Brousse" (local transportation).
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

This report was done in 2006. Since then, things didn’t improve. After the political turmoil in 2008 and the global economic crash, mining activities went down as many strangers left and mining sites were abandoned. Sexual exploitation of children were still a problem in 2008, as reported in the «Tribune de Madagascar». Gangsterism were reported at the beginning of 2013, as many parts of the town were without electricity for months, due to a private company that offered a «very bad service for high cost», resulting in public protest. In 2011, a man named Philippe Ressigeac emailed me to express his disagreement with my story, stating that he was part of a guiding operator that organized visits in the mines. He also stated that he had not seen children and women working in mines and there was no security problems. Although he admited not having red my report and not having looked at the photo essay, he was saying that the story was false and was giving his business a bad press. When asked for facts about improvement in children labor, poverty and sexual exploitation, he could not answer. I never heard of him again.

This report was done in 2006. Since then, things didn’t improve. After the political turmoil in 2008 and the global economic crash, mining activities went down as many strangers left and mining sites were abandonned. Sexual exploitation of children were still a problem in 2008, as reported in the «Tribune de Madagascar». Gangsterism were reported at the beginning of 2013, as many parts of the town were without electricity for months, due to a private company that offered a «very bad service for high cost», resulting in public protest.

From Syria, On Spec: Wary of Staff in Harm’s Way, Editors Leave War Coverage to $70 Stringers

From Syria, On Spec: Wary of Staff in Harm’s Way, Editors Leave War Coverage to $70 Stringers | Documentary photography | Scoop.it
The new model of relying on freelancers doesn’t take into account the unprecedented dangers in Syria, where journalists are very often targeted from the moment they cross the border. Read More
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

Are the media outlet that don't want to send assigned reporters to war and prefer buying from freelancers AFTER they come back, irresponsables and exploitives ?


"Mr. Oghana, 28, has covered war zones (Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Afghanistan) for outlets including The New York TimesThe Economist and Time since 2009. But this past year, he began noticing a change.

Rather than committing to assignments as they had in the past, his editors began responding to his pitches by offering to take what he gets when he returns."

Photography as Advocacy: Origins of a Journey – PROOF

Photography as Advocacy: Origins of a Journey – PROOF | Documentary photography | Scoop.it
Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

"Sometimes you can pinpoint the exact moment when you decide to change the rest of your life. For photographer Marcus Bleasdale, it happened one London morning in 1998 when he walked into the office where he was working as an investment banker. “Even at that point, I had long known I wouldn’t stay in banking, but that day there was just this trigger,” he recalled. “I didn’t even sit down, and I walked into my boss’s office and resigned.”


Not long afterward, Marcus first arrived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo with an idea to retrace the river as Joseph Conrad might have seen it as he penned Heart of Darkness. The images he made then were the first of what became a living body of work that would span the next 13 years."

Marc-André Pauzé's insight:

The arctic. A land of mysteries that sparks our imagination with imageries of Inuit riding over the ice with their dog sled, living in igloos, hunting and fishing to survive. But this world is changing. It has already changed. On the “Northern Edge” Project, I will travel on the territory, to meet the Inuit and document changes related to global warming, modernization and living in a global and connected world.

Marc-André Pauzé's insight:
"We have to accept and evolve this technique which can move away from the format of printed press, which is under the dictatorship of editorial and political agendas and bring the media to the people in an informative, engaging, transparent way and above all maintain the integrity of the story being presented. In this way we can move away from the concerns about individual egos, and discussions about aesthetics of the imagery and bring forward a whole network of information through the witnessing and deciphering of information for the public to be understanding the broad spectrum of issues that form the whole story for public awareness.
