Pascal Maitre started his career as a photo journalist in 1979 in Paris. Today he is one of the world’s best photographers, working for prestigious magazines such as GEO, National Geographic, Le Figaro, or Paris Match. His photographs were shown at numerous exhibitions around the globe, including eight times at the photo festival Visa pour l’Image. Pascal Maitre worked as a photo journalist in more than 40 African countries, focussing on the fundamental themes of this inexhaustible continent: the African peoples and their ways of life, politics, conflicts, and traditions. In 2012, Maitre’s personal ‘best of’ selection was published by Edition Lammerhuber under the title Amazing Africa. And in 2017 he published BAOBAB.
