Concurrently to these reports, part of his work focuses on social issues such as family and the way it’s changing, as well as immigration in France, carried out in association with various institutions and editorial boards such as Libération, Le Monde, Géo, and Marie-Claire.
Now, Wilfrid Estève lives in Paris, Tangier, and Carcassone. He’s a photographer, a teacher and a producer. He runs the Hans Lucas studio and presides over the non-profit association Freelens and the publishing house Louvre Rivoli.
