DEPARDON, Raymond. Gilles Caron – Reporter 1967-1970.

(Paris): Editions du Chene, 1978. First edition. Quarto. 78 pages. An amazing volume on the work the photographic work of Gilles Carron, a war objector Caron covered all the major conflicts of the late sixties, before disappearing, aged just 31, on Route 1, a road between Cambodia and Vietnam controlled by Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge. Caron’s opposition to war, and his questioning of his role as a war correspondent have seemingly allowed him to capture images that would not be seen by others, and whilst his images are of the conflict they also step outside of it, a look, a moment, a colour, a hope, a loss, a contradiction, a juxtaposition. An immensley powerful work from a little known, yet superb photographer. Illustrated throughout with black and white images. A very good plus copy in photo-illustrated wrappers.
