Photographer's Note

Pour illustrer mes propos de l'image prcdente, voici donc le camion franais de l'ISAF sur lequel nous avons voyag en 2003. J'avais l'impression de visiter un monde perdu, une autre poque, de vivre un film. Nous savions que le pays tait potentiellement dangereux mais le vhicule avait des portes en toile, nous n'avions aucun blind en appui, nos casques taient sous les siges et le gilet pare-balle n'tait port que durant les dplacements. Dans le WS, un portrait de l'infirmire hollandaise qui m'accompagnait.
Il est facile de comparer ces images avec les colonnes lourdement armes qui se dplacent en milieu hostile sur des images rcentes.

To illustrate my point of the previous picture, here is the french truck of ISAF on which we have travelled in 2003. I felt like visiting a lost world, another time, living a movie. We knew that the country was potentially dangerous, but the vehicle was open, we had no armoured support, our helmets were under the seats and the body armour was only worn during travel. In the WS, a portrait of the Dutch nurse who accompanied me.
It is easy to compare these images with heavily armed columns moving in a hostile environment on recent images.
