Prix Bayeux-Calvados

A cathedral for the Syrians

As part of its war correspondents festival, from 4 October to 2 November 2014, the town of Bayeux hosted an exhibition entitled “200,000 Syrians” in the heart of its Romanesque-Gothic cathedral. Laurent Van Der Stockt’s photos of the Syrian conflict were to be discovered as one strolled though the edifice, photographs that merited more than just a moment’s attention. This film bears witness to the event.
