“Constant exposure to tragedy shook my understanding of who we were and who I was, forcing me to look for an answer”. This odyssey revealed to Frank Fournier a history that had not occurred in the way he was taught.

It certainly did not happen for the noble reasons our “democratic” nations claimed to be motivated. It convinced him to address the need to know, to share, no matter how challenging these events are because they are about the Other.

Gilles Deleuze thought that André Malraux had established a powerful concept when he wrote: “only art survives death.” Deleuze went on to say: …Only the act of resistance resists to death, either in the form of artwork or the form of man’s struggle.” The photographs in this essay represent stories that should have never developed the way they did and yet somehow they keep resurging. They impart the violence we created, but the Others endured. They intend to reveal the magnitude and the reach of each of these individuals in their struggle and how history like democracy is being twisted to serve the financial and economic hegemony of the West.
