Capucine Granier-Deferre, a French-American photographer based in Paris, is the latest addition to the Getty Images Reportage Emerging Talent roster. In recent years she has distinguished herself with photoessays on topics as varied as the war in Ukraine, domestic protests in France and a moving story of a young Haitian with a congenital heart defect.
After studying Economy and graduating from Icart-Photo School in 2011, Capucine started documenting gypsy families over several months in Bondy, creating a daily visual testimony of a neglected minority. The resulting work was published in Paris-Match magazine. She then went on to cover elections and their aftermath in Tunisia, Egypt, and Chokri Belaid’s Funeral in Tunisia, work from which was shown at Bayeux War Correspondents Festival in Autumn 2013.
Since April of last year she has been covering the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine (above), for clients like Paris Match, Le Monde and The New York Times. You can see more of her work on the Reportage website.
