Biography

Born in 1934, the committed photo-reporter Georges Azenstarck worked for the French newspaper « L'Humanité » from 1956 to 1968, and for the trade union press. He photographed picket lines, cities, shantytowns and the daily life of immigrants. His work is a remarkable testimony to French social and working class life. On October 17, 1961 in Paris, he witnessed the murderous repression of peaceful Algerian demonstrators by the police force, decided by Prefect Maurice Papon. For fear of censorship, his images were not immediately published. They will be useful, as will his testimony at the trial of Maurice Papon in 1997. "Jojo" or Georges Azenstarck, born Georges Leferfort, died on September 2nd, 2020 in Marseille (France). His photographs are exclusively distributed by the Roger-Viollet Agency.
