Françoise Huguier: 100 Photos for Press Freedom, edited by Perribe Daubas. Paris: Reporters Without Borders (RSF). 2018. 134 pages. ISBN 978-2-36220-050-9.

THIS is yet another extraordinary ‘100 Photos for Press Freedom’ album from Reporters Sans Frontières (RSF), this time with a focus on the ‘indignation of women against male predation and domination’ (p. 139), as essayist Aude Bassonville notes in one of the accompanying articles. The collection of photos mostly feature the work of French photographer Françoise Huguier, who is described by the editors as chareacteristic of the best attributes of a photojournalist – ‘curiosity, intensity, desire and a love for life’.
