On January 12, 2010, the earth shook in Haïti and Olivier Laban-Mattei was there. He returned to provide in depth coverage of the elections. “6mois” dedicated 26 pages to this story about the birth of a city on an abandoned airfield.
“His heart is in Corsica, where his son Lisandru lives. At 21, Olivier Laban-Mattei took the route opposite his mother who, born in Corsica, ventured off to Paris. He settled in Ajaccio after having spent his childhood in a Parisian suburb.
For five years, he was the Agence France Presse (AFP) correspondent there, before spending five years at the Paris headquarters. Fro there he would covered breaking news across the globe. That would still be the case if he hadn’t decided, in 2010, to break away. At 34, Olivier Laban-Mattei now only dreams about in depth coverage.”
