Le Monde, Aug. 2018 - on assignment

Nadege Mazars

On August 21-22, 2018, I followed with Marie Delcas Venezuelan migrants at the border between Colombia and Ecuador. 
The online story: https://www.lemonde.fr/ameriques/article/2018/08/24/a-la-frontiere-colombo-equatorienne-le-desarroi-des-migrants-venezueliens_5345605_3222.html

And here the online portfolio I did during the assignment: https://www.lemonde.fr/ameriques/portfolio/2018/08/24/le-desarroi-des-migrants-venezueliens-a-la-frontiere-colombo-equatorienne_5345748_3222.html

Berlingske - July 2018

Nadege Mazars

Reportage with Linnea Fehrm at La Gotera Jail where all the 1500 inmates, former gang members, are converted to Christinaity. I took the pictures on April 19, 2018 in this jail. And it was perhaps one of the most surprising place I was, with a total contrast between tattoo and bible, crime and redemption. 

Stern Crime - June 2018

Nadege Mazars

One year ago in April 2017, when I heard about the former gang members converted to Christianity, it was something really strange and new for me, something I never thank about. To be honest I came to El Salvador with the idea of no working on the "gang issue". Three months later I came back to El Salvador to discover an unknown world.
This story, first published with Stern Crime here, has been and continue to be more than a reportage. Because I approached and tried to understand the complexity into which El Salvador is caught. And first at all the young people, caught in a war without name. For those who were affiliated to a gang and search to go out, there is few options to change their life. There is no specific public policy, except repression. Only some evangelical churches open their doors. Here comes a part of the story.

Souvenirs from Cuba - March 2016

Nadege Mazars

Looking at my archives,  I found these nice souvenir of Cuba.

March 27, 2016, La Habana. The road near the Malecón and the mythic National Habana Hotel receives the sunset light. Young Cubans are crossing the road while an old American car, a “taxi colectivo” is following its way. This typical old car is a symbol of the Cuban capital. It’s also a living testimony of the economic embargo effects, with the prohibition to import recent cars.
Few days ago on March 2016, the United States president Barack Obama went to Cuba for a historic visit. Since 1928, no US president ever travelled to the Caribbean island. 

I remembered this night I was coming back from the Malecón, after some good meetings with friends, good rhum and a looooot of Mariachi music. Well, a classic cuban night after all. I was on my way to my bed when I met this woman on the street, tired like me, and walking, alone with such a style. And this big head of tiger on her dress, suggesting: "Yeaah I'm pretty beautiful, Yeaah, do not try to touch me without my permission, and yeahhh I'm free I do what I want". (March 29, 2016) 

The New York Times - February 2018

Nadege Mazars

First picture published for an assignment I did for The New York Times about the FARC campaign in Colombia.
The pictures came in support to an article/opinion by María Antonia García de la Torre.

IPIALES, NARINO, COLOMBIA – FEBRUARY 25, 2018: A young girl carries a white flag, peace symbol, at the entrance of the rally where Iván Marquéz, head of the FARC electoral list for Senate, is expected. After a 53 years old war, the FARC guerrilla and the Colombian government signed the peace on November 2016. On September 2017, the guerrilla ceased to exist to become the political party FARC (Revolutionnary Alternative Force of the Common). CREDIT: Nadège Mazars for The New York Times

IG Story with Le Monde

Nadege Mazars

IG story with Le Monde today, about the low Caguán river and life after the peace signed, in this territory at the borderline of wilderness land.
A reportage I did with Marie Delcas. We met a lot of people with concerns of what will happen now. Big issues threatening this land, like deforestation.

Libération

Nadege Mazars

Pictures and publication on Libération about the story of Teodora, sentenced to 30 years in jail after a miscarriage, the perseverance of Ceci, her sister, to denounce the injustice, and the fight of Agrupación Cuidadana por la Depenalización del Aborto en El Salvador.
Criminalization of abortion in el Salvador is so total and blind that a woman can be convicted for a homicide after a miscarriage.
Strong story by Anne Proenza
Thanks to Frédérique Rondet to edit it for Libération.
Thanks to Jean Stern and his support for the achievement of this reportage on the field with Chronique d'Amnesty International.
And again, thanks to IWMF for its support on the first step of the reportage.

RISC Training in Medellín

Nadege Mazars

Between 5-8 December 2017, I followed the RISC Training with 23 others journalists. First time RISC organized a training in Latin America. Fantastic teaching, thanks also to Wilderness Medical Associates International. I'm now graduate to a Battlefield Medical Response… hope to never have to put it into practice, but ready to do it.
I can only advise to any journalist to do this training. DO IT!
