How does a news photograph come to life? Through an immersion in the photo department of France's leading national daily newspaper during the 2022 presidential elections, French photographer and director Vassili Feodoroff tells us about the essential yet little-known role of picture editors. From assigning topics to photographers, defining visual needs, to the final selection of the shot: they are at the origin of images that will mark our minds and sometimes history. Without any voice-over, this short film, as contemplative as it is dynamic, plunges us into the heart of image-making.
