The Everyday Projects
Franck Vogel works as a photojournalist specializing in environmental & social issues for the international press (GEO, Paris Match, Stern, Le Monde Diplomatique...). He is also a speaker and a documentary film director (France Television).
Franck is currently focusing on global transboundary water conflicts and has completed stories on the Nile, the Brahmaputra and the Colorado. Articles were published by GEO, Stern and Le Monde diplomatique, exhibited at Gardens by the Bay (Singapore), Pavillon de l'Eau in Paris and Festival Photoreporter (France), and featured in lectures Franck gave at Columbia University in partnership with the Earth Institute. BBC News interviewed him live on the rivers' project while visiting Singapore in 2016. A two-volume book set will be released by La Martinière and the 1st volume will be launched in Sept 2016.
Since 2007, Franck has focused on the unique relationship between Man & Nature in an effort to illustrate that it's possible to live in harmony. As an example, his epic work about the Bishnoi community in India tells the story of some of the world's first environmentalists. This work has been published all over the globe, including in GEO magazine's special 30th anniversary issue in 2009, as well as photos showcased in Parisian Metro stations in 2011 and 2012 (15 million visitors). In order to a wider audience, Franck wrote and co-directed a documentary film entitled « The Bishnois, India's Eco-Warriors", which was broadcast on France TV. The film was awarded the Phoenix d'Or 2011 and the 2013 Terre Sauvage Award.
His work to denounce the Albino killings in Tanzania has been featured in magazines and exhibited around the world (Rencontres d'Arles, Visa pour l'Image, Pingyao Festival…), and Michel Lafon released his book on Albinos in 2012. His book « Zeru, Zeru » is available on Blurb.
In October 2013 Franck received highest honors from Bishnoi community.
He is ambassador for Green Cross, M. Gorbatchev’s NGO for environment.
