Throwback to 30 years of wandering the world: FKCCI members meet with famous photo-reporter

Throwback on 30 years of wandering the world: FKCCI members meet with famous photo-reporter

Who, in their wildest dream, never wanted to experience all the beauty in the world? 

At the occasion of the first visit of Thomas Goisque in Korea, the FKCCI was glad to welcome the veteran photo-reporter at its premises on April 18th in partnership with Renault Korea Motors, together with 50 representatives of the French-Korean business community. 

For a long time, photo-journalists have been contributing significantly to the news media, and helping communities connect with one another.  Combining creativity and accuracy, they offer us a valuable mirror of the world. 

This is the case for Thomas who explored throughout his life more than a hundred countries and could present 40 photographs from his finest adventures, ranging from explorations in Yunan to a motorbike trip in the Patagonian Desert. “It has been 30 years that I have been traveling. Usually, I propose stories to a magazine, and if accepted, I leave for two to three weeks with a journalist. Therefore, I am always looking for new stories to tell and new countries to discover!”, he said.  

“Photography is above all a matter of encounters”, he added, telling us the story of how he embarked on a sailboat roundtrip around Africa with famous writers such as Le Clézio. He also contributed to numerous adventures of French writer and traveler Sylvain Tesson, across the Baikal Lake for example.  

Thomas Goisque is also the one who took the first pictures of Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral on April 15, 2019, eleven days after a fire that ravaged the monument.  The famous photograph, that made the cover of the Times magazine, was exhibited at FKCCI’s main hall for the occasion: a captivating testimony of the disaster that resonated in the heart of the French nation. 

Graduated in 1995 from the National School of Decorative Arts, Thomas Goisque carried out his major graduation project in Southeast Asia for the benefit of a French NGO involved in the education of street children: Les Mekong children. He traveled throughout Southeast Asia as a volunteer from Sept 1992 to May 1993, and again volunteered in 1997-98 in northern Cambodia.
