Pierre Verger is certainly the most human photographer loving world. A respectful and tender glance from a still virgin time. A rediscovery of the photographer Pierre Verger, before his revival in Fatumbi (initiated in Vodoo worship). In 1932, at the age of thirty, Pierre Verger decided to leave everything and travel, devoting himself to photography. He was to become one of the great photographers of this time, publishing photographs of peoples all over the world.   His vision of Humanity transcends all traditions and all differences. Driven by this same curiosity and love of the world he also became one of the first to research into Vodoo and the history of the negro slave trade between Africa and Americas. The 210 photographs presented in this book tell the sensitive and moving tale of a great talent still today unknown. He attends George-Henri Rivière, Michel Leiris (who open him the African world to the Ethnographic Trocadero Museum in Paris as the evenings of “Negro Dance”), the “Jacques Prévert band”, and humaniste photographers of the time (Zuber, Boucher, Feher, Bellon then Capa with whom he founds the agency Alliance Photo).
