“Photographer since 1969, François Desjobert was a freelance reporter for the AFP and SYGMA agencies in the 70s and 80s. He then founded his own publishing company, which became the reference in this field on the Island of Beauty.
An activity essentially devoted to Corsica, which will never divert him from his objective concerning the island of beauty, to testify through his photographs of the osmosis between nature and man, the omni- presence of the one so often determining the way of life of the other.

1970 – Bonifacio
Leo was not always kind to photographers! With me he was very kind. In the alleys of Bonifacio in 1970, he kindly posed in front of a poster of his show.
You can’t hear him but with this gesture he says “Bad guy…” with his so particular accent, to make fun of himself.
