BEB C. REYNOL (b.1966) is a documentary photographer and a photojournalist focusing on social-cultural issues. On the road and with a camera at the age of twenty, he covered stories of insect hunters, following their footsteps into the heart of the uncharted Amazonian forest of French Guyana; he managed to hitch hike through the whole distance west-east coast length of the U.S before embarking into a long journey through the South and Central Asia, crossing the border that separates Pakistan from Afghanistan. While in Afghanistan, Beb worked alongside Afghan photojournalists for AINA Media, a French NGO working on contributing to the independent media development. He trained, coordinated and assisted local photographers to a UNICEF anti-child-labor photo campaign while creating a photo documentary of called Forced Destiny. The photo documentary was taken on a national broadcast for a Canadian television program through Radio-Canada, showcasing his commitment as an independent photographer working in the conflict zones of Kandahar – southern Afghanistan without any affiliations with any leading media.
Since 2006, Beb has been working on recording stories of ordinary Pashtuns in a project titled – Forbidden Faces: Afghanistan’s Untold Stories. An interview called “Documenting Identity in the Taliban Borderlands of Pakistan and Afghanistan” was released following an endorsement from the University of Nebraska - http://www.artocratic.com/interviews/1008_beb1.html. Beb’s work on the front lines in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other parts of the world give him a rare perspective on creating powerful images while collaborating with international NGO’s including the Afghanistan Development & Peace Research Organization (ADPRO) in Kabul where he continues to collaborate in the education of Afghan photojournalists.
His contribution as a photojournalist led him to the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York where he currently conducts multiple workshops focusing on the photo documentary and photojournalism in the context of social change. Since March 2016, Beb joined the team at the University of Nebraska in Omaha as a Research Associate of the Center for Afghanistan Studies.
