“The first picture I published was one of Paris by night, taken from the plane. The first response of a friend was: “They have that much electricity?”

Macron’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia was the first time a Western leader landed in the kingdom since the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Just prior to that he signed arms deals worth €17 billion in the UAE. What moves the French President?

Nassim Levy was forced to flee Lebanon for France in 1976. He no longer uses his Lebanese passport, as he is today a French citizen, yet always kept his mother tongue close his heart. He even taught his wife. “We used to listen a lot to Fairuz.”
