Patrick Baz is French-Lebanese, born in Beirut in 1963. He was twelve when war broke out in Lebanon in 1975. Living not far from the demarcation line separating the Christian and Muslim zones, Baz was stimulated by what was going on around him to take up photography at an early age. Lebanon became his training ground. Between 1982 and 1988, he worked as a freelance photojournalist. In 1989, Agence France-Presse (AFP) gave him the opportunity of covering the First Intifada in Gaza and the West Bank. He covered the First Gulf War in 1990, and later conflicts in Kurdistan, Somalia, Bosnia, Iraq, the \u201cArab Springs\u201d and Afghanistan. Baz stopped covering war zones in 2014 and is currently the manager of Factstory (a content production company) for the MENA region. He has won two POYi awards, and published Don\u2019t Take My Picture, Iraqis Don\u2019t Cry in 2009 and Christians of Lebanon Rites and Rituals in 2017.<\/p>
