For almost 10 years, I had the good fortune to work side by side with one of the greatest news reporter of the XXth Century, Camille Chatelot. Camille Chatelot spent most of his life traveling around the world for as Pathé News from 1946 until 1976. Before he passed away in 2001, at age 92, he was still a fascinating optimist and a believer in mankind.
Together we ran a production company called Atlas Films for 10 years, we distributed Archival footage of worlwide photography and films about Ethnology and under water treasure searches. The last film we worked on was an historical saga, in Aboukir, Egypt, where Atlas Films found the vestiges of the famous battle against the British Navy.
Here is a collection of some of the images and stories we used to talk about and soon, I will put up selected scenes of an interview of Mr Chatelot.
