A presentation by the historian and photographer, Dr Berny Sébe

Berny Sèbe, D.Phil (Oxon), FRGS, was born in Nice (France) and partly brought up in the Sahara desert, where he has been travelling since he was a child. He became closely associated to the activities of his father, the French desert photographer and publisher Alain Sèbe, with whom he still regularly publishes photographic books, including Sahara au jour le jour (with Alain Sèbe) (Paris, 2010) and Tibesti, Sahara interdit (ed., with Alain Sèbe) (Vidauban, 2005). He is currently a lecturer in Colonial and Post Colonial Studies in the French Department at the University of Birmingham.
