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!

Chronique d'Amnesty International about Abortion in El Salvador

Nadege Mazars

In El Salvador, there are women going to jail after having a miscarriage, charged for homicide and convicted for 30 years. 
The abortion penalization is absolute and there are total confusion and suspicion that most of the time turned against women with humble origins. Women can't have abortion including when pregnancy is a real danger for their life, including when the pregnancy is a consequence of a rape, including when the girl is only 12…
Teodora is one of these women. She called the emergency when she felt she was about to give birth… They didn't arrived on time, she fainted, didn't realized she lost her baby, and when the medical service came to her, it was to report to the police. In December, her sentence, 30 years imprisonment, was confirmed…

Please have a look to the special feature of Chronique d'Amnesty International, November 2017, with my pictures in El Salvador and a sensitive text by Anne Proenza.

The IWMF supported the first steps of this reportage as part of its Adelante Latin America Reporting Initiative.

Colors of Peace

Nadege Mazars

Between 20 and 27 June  27, 2017, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP) end to hand over their weapons after a 53 years old internal war.
This portrait series presents guerrilleros from the transitional zone of La Carmelita, Putumayo, Colombia. It has been shoot at the beginning of June 2017, while they began to hand over the weapons
Relearning how to have a sedentary life, the guerrilleros built their own home and start their transition to civil life, learning the use of new tools. For years, they lived on camps blending into the green jungle. The security compels them to use the monotone colors of camouflage. Now, free again to find their singularity, they are decorating their home according to a vibrant color palette and are posing in front of the walls recently painted of the buildings where they will begin their new life.

Cover - Chronique d'Amnesty International May 2017

Nadege Mazars

A special issue about Colombia and the enforced disappearances with Anne Proenza. Ten pages more the cover.
Anne gives us an investigation about the complex way to find the missing people for their families. We were in Medellín, where the paramilitary groups had spread a policy of terror in districts like Comuna 13.
If the Colombian Center for Historical Memory talks about 60,630 documented cases of disappeared in the country between 1970 and 2015, the amount could be much more impressive, according to distinct sources. In a Colombia searching the way to peace, establish the truth about missing people is a requirement which however will need a lot of time.
