The PhotographerBook - 2009
At the end of July 1986, Didier Lefevre left Paris for Afghanistan. He barely returned to tell the tale. It was his first major assignmnent as a photojournalist, documenting a Doctors Without Borders mission. Camera in hand, Lefevre traveled with a band of doctors and nurses into the heart of Northern Afghanistan, where the war between the Soviet Union and the Afghan Mujahideen was raging. The mission affected Lefevre as profoundly as the war affected contemporary history. His photographs , paired with the art of Emmanuel Guibert, tell the story of an ardous journey undertaken by men and women intent on mending what others destroy.
