Pierre Terdjman

#Dysturb is a network of photojournalists driven by the desire to make visual information freely accessible to a wider audience by pasting large images in city streets.

#Dysturb presents photojournalism in a new, innovative way, completely independent from the restrictions of conventional news publishing channels. We believe in arming our youth with the tools to further understand the images and information they see every day, with interventions in streets, schools and online.

 

Pierre Terdjman is one of the founders of #Dysturb. He began his career in the Israeli daily left wing newspaper Haaretz. In 2007, he returned to France to join the team of photographers at Gamma agency.

Since then he has covered the post-election violence in Kenya, the Russian-Georgian conflict, Afghanistan (where he spent a year following a French unit for Paris-Match), and Haiti after the earthquake. More recently, he photographed the Arab Spring, covering both the fall of Ben Ali in Tunisia, Mubarak in Egypt and the struggle for liberation against Gaddafi in Libya. He is also regularly in Israel, and is documenting the fall of the Israeli dream in a long-term project called “La La Land”.

In 2012, he won a scholarship Photoreporter Festival of Saint-Brieuc to continue his work in the long term. In 2013, he covered the uprising of violences in Central Africa for the French magazine Paris Match. Earlier this year, he won the Lens Culture Award for a picture from his work in Central African Republic. Pierre’s work has been exhibited twice at Visa Pour L’Image and is regularly published in Paris Match, GQ and The New York Times Magazine. In April 2015, Pierre joined Getty Images Reportage.
