Franck Vogel works as a freelance photojournalist on social and environmental issues for the international press (Paris Match, GEO, Le Monde magazine, NRC Weekblad, Animan, Discovery magazine…).

Since 2007, he has focused on the unique relationships between Nature and Human beings to show the World that it’s possible to live in harmony. Most reportage depict the worst, Franck decided to bring hope. In India, his story on the Bishnois, the world’s first environmentalists, illustrates this in the best way. This work has been published all over the world, including GEO magazine for its special 30th anniversary in 2009, and featured inside Parisian Metro stations in 2011 (Montparnasse) and 2012 (Luxembourg). Over 15 million visitors have seen those huge exhibitions. To give a wider audience, Franck Vogel wrote and co-directed a documentary film for France 5, “Rajasthan, l’âme d’un prophète” (Rajasthan, the soul of a prophet), broadcasted June 11th, 2011.

His recent 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 Photo Festival in China…), and Michel Lafon Publishing will release his book on Albinos October 4th, 2012.

In 2012, he decided to start focusing on Water tensions (Nile, Mekong, Colorado,…). The first story on the Nile was produced and exhibited by the Photoreporter Festival in St Brieuc (France) in October 2012.

He is ambassador for Green Cross France, Mikhaïl Gorbatchev’s NGO for environment.
