THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Into War-Torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders

PANEL DISCUSSION & RECEPTION

This event has reached capacity.

Please note that the exhibit of "The Photographer" is free and open to the public through May 19, Monday to Friday 10am - 6pm; Saturday & Sunday 12pm - 6pm.

For another opportunity to hear from the author of The Photographer, please consider attending the book signing and discussion featuring Emmanuel Guibert on Monday, May 4.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and First Second Books are pleased to present a unique opportunity to hear from some of the key people involved in the creation of The Photographer during a panel discussion at the VII Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. 

Illustrator and graphic novelist Emmanuel Guibert will explain how a conversation with photographer Didier Lefèvre, evolved into the incredible story told in the book, depicted by his own stunning artwork and Didier’s photographs. 

Mark Siegel, editorial director at First Second Books, will discuss the process of creating the English version of the book, and the wonderful opportunity to now share this story with the English speaking world. 

Doctors Without Borders-USA Executive Director Sophie Delaunay will be on hand to explain MSF’s current activities in the Afghan-Pakistani region. 

We are very pleased to also include a special guest, Juliette Fournot, who served as head of mission in Afghanistan for MSF from 1983-1989, and is one of the aid workers featured prominently in the book.

The discussion will be followed by audience Q&A.
