In 2019-2020, Camille Gharbi, winner of the Fidal Youth Photography Award 2018 with her series “Preuves d’amour”, collaborated in a background investigation led by Le Monde into marital murders.

The result is a striking observation: in 80% of cases the victims are women. And in the majority of these cases, the separation, or rather the refusal of the separation, is the trigger for taking action.

“She leaves him, he kills her. ”

This work sheds light on a real mechanism of announced crimes, which could have been avoided if society had been able to respond to the many warning signs that preceded them.
