French photographer, member of Agence VU’ since 2021, based in Paris (France).
While doing press assignments, his documentary work takes him to places marked by the past and presenting him with symbols and history to address in a bid to reveal dramas now invisible: Chernobyl, Auschwitz, Nagasaki, and, more recently, the conflict in Ukraine. His photographs have been exhibited in many festivals and venues (e.g. in Paris, at the Jeu de Paume museum, the Maison Rouge and la grande Arche du Photojournalisme). Guillaume Herbaut has received a number of distinctions, including two World Press awards, a Visa d’or, the Niépce Prize (2011) and the Bayeux-Calvados award for war correspondents (2016, in the Web-journalism category, for his logbook on Ukraine produced by Arte Info).
