Stunning wildlife pictures
2

Hi all superzoom users, and wildlife lovers

I was in Perpignan last weekend, to the "Visa pour l'image" festival.

It's an exhibition of photojournalism.

I want just to inform you that  there I saw the most amazing wildlife pictures I've ever seen.

They were from a photographer called Vincent Munier. I have no idea about the stuff he used to take these photos. I think you might be interested in his work.

Thanks. I didn't know Vincent Mounier.

Funny that he and Vincent Munier have almost the same name.

The exhibition was about Vincent Munier.

Right, very similar surnames they have. And they're both photogs.

You're welcome, Steve. As you know, I'm not a superzoom user. But when I saw these pictures, I was blown away.

Yes, but these picture were the nice part. The rest is much less pleasant, but presents the world in which we live.

There was a lot of pictures from the photographer Eric Bouvet, about Afghanistan, like that one, shot 21 years ago...

This is what he wrote, under the photo:

"Visit of a hospital, escorted by the Taliban. It is of course forbidden to take pictures. But I can't help it, when the door opens and I discover this group of young women in burqa in the middle of a nursing class, I press the shutter. Not without some problems afterwards, but I will manage to save this film, swearing that I have photographed the notebook (in the foreground)"
