News COVID-19 and Us by Magnum Photos and You – Week 5

Our theme this week: Preventing

COVID-19 challenges us at every level, for it forces us to question our status quo, our way of living and our assumptions. This week, we are tackling a new theme with you: prevention. What are the issues surrounding prevention? This does not only concern hygiene and sanitary measures, but also takes us into a societal field. How can we prevent the loss of connection and isolation? How can we prevent social distress, food insecurity, isolation of vulnerable people?

Join us on Friday June 26 at 12.15 pm for a conversation about this week’s images with our guests Stéphanie Lambert, Director General of the Geneva Red Cross and Magali Dougados, photographer.

Moderator: Alessia Barbezat, Head of Communications and Public Relations, MICR

Conversation in French.

Magali Dougados

Magali Dougados is a freelance photographer who for several years now has been roaming the wings of the stages of the Théâtre de La Comédie and the Grand Théâtre de Genève in search of those invisible moments when the creative process is elaborating a show; those moments to be captured on the spot to reveal what has been experienced through between rehearsals and surges of energy. A work of stage that complements the work done with the authors of the Société de Lecture. These collaborations, as well as those she faithfully pursues with the NOF of Fribourg, various festivals, or with the photographer Sandra Pointet for the magazine In The Mood du Bon Génie, feed the same quest, which is also reflected in her personal work.
