Patrick ZachmannPatrick Zachmann (*1955) started working as a photographer in 1975. In 1979, he began his project about Jewish identity, which appeared in 1987 titled Enquête d’identité. Zachmann focussed on themes of little interest to the news media, such as the Mafia in Naples, or the problems of migrants in Marseilles. In 1989, Zachmann reported on events at Tian’anmen Square in Beijing, and documented the Chinese Diaspora over the following years. In 1990, he became a member of the Magnum Agency. In 2013, Mare Mater in which Zachmann links the current fate of migrants with his own family story, was released.
