For several months now History has been facing a pandemic. But on the sidelines of this history with a capital “H” there are also other stories to tell. Like here, in this Care and Rehabilitation Center where these patients like no other being afflicted by other pathologies called co-morbidities, cannot be candidates to integrate an intensive care unit in the event of COVID-19 acute symptoms development. Already overloaded these units will be allocated to younger and healthier people with better chances of recovery. Elderly patients are still the medical system's left behind.

I am a professional French wildlife and conservation photographer working on environmental and scientific projects, conference speaker and photo teacher.
I collaborate with magazines and my images are distributed by several agencies around the world. I also work for museums, international research and conservation organizations and for more than 10 years I have created and accompanied workshops, trainings and worldwide photographic trips.
I am Associate Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) and Ambassador of the Cokin brand of photographic filters.
