The award-winning Parisian comics creator has transformed two life-changing friendships into remarkable graphic biographies. Guibert recorded hours of the American Alan Cope's experiences in Europe during World War Two and his Californian childhood in 30s Los Angeles. From these, Guibert has crafted Alan's War and his latest book, How The World Was

The French photographic journalist Didier Lefèvre revealed his gruelling mission to Afghanistan with Doctors without Borders, and his powerful photos, mostly unpublished, uniquely combine with Guibert's drawings in The Photographer. Join Emmanuel Guibert in conversation about these significant graphic biographies.
