Photographer for more than ten years, Michael Bunel specializes in the press and covers French and international news. He has notably worked on the migration crisis from Syria to Calais since 2013; he traveled to Turkey to cover demonstrations in Taksim Square, to Gaza during the “March of Return” and to Ukraine to follow the armed insurgency of separatists in the Donbass. His work is divided between his personal projects and commissions for the press and NGOs. He is the author of two books, “Croire dans le 9.3”, which follows a year of reporting on the Catholic faith in Seine-Saint-Denis, and EXIL, which resumes its work on migration. Some of these images are part of the photographic collection of the National Museum of the History of Immigration.
