Photojournalist Pascal Maitre has been capturing Africa for over 30 years. But “each story is like new,” he said an interview with The New York Times, “You must find a new solution, a new piece to make the story.”

Photographers are first-class noticers. They wait for something to happen. Said Maitre:

“The most difficult part is to be in a place where something interesting is happening. To get physical access, authorization and safety. Once you’re on the spot, shooting is never difficult.”
