Photographer/Cinematographers Arrested

Photographer and cinematographer Thomas Dandois, member of the association Grains de Beauté-promotion, and Pierre Creisson were arrested in Niger while making a documentary for the French television channel ARTE.

The pair are accused of endangering state security and risk execution if found

guilty of this crime. Please show your support in any way you can. Here are the contact details for Thomas Dandois: website: http://www.camicas-productions.com and email t.dandois@gmail.com .

The pair has filmed important documentaries on Darfur and South Africa, as well as previous work on Niger. This is one more senseless attack on photojournalists trying to uncover embarrassing truths.
