Didier & Regis

A little piece of wisdom from the graphic novel The Photographer (Indonesian version). 

Though not demonstrated in the above excerpt, what I like the most about this book is how Didier Levefre's photographs (mostly in the form of contact prints) are incorporated seamlessly with Emmanuel Gilbert's illustrations through various methods. Sometimes there are panels leading up to one (or a couple) strong photograph. Other times the page only consists of the contact print of an entire roll. It's a dynamic back-and-forth shift of first person and third person perspective, with one perspective informing the other to make a full understanding of the story. I think it's an interesting practice of how we can use and combine photographs with other media to give contexts to them.
