Presentation

Wounds in the souls of French soldiers

During a 4-year investigation, Jérémy Lempin followed the careers of six French soldiers or their wives who had returned from operations "burnt out from the inside", and gathered their testimonies: no apparent physical after-effects, but an invisible wound that gradually nibbles away at the mind, then the body.

"Post-traumatic stress disorder is like a horror movie in your head."
Elio, 12 years old

Talking about French servicemen killed or wounded in action is not fashionable. Showing their psychological wounds - by definition invisible - is taboo.

Giving a voice to the victims of this insidious evil means understanding the reasons behind it. It also means calling on the public authorities to provide better care for the injured, and to support those who, through their unwavering commitment, have served our country's values.

An Army photographer from 2006 to 2016, and now a freelance photojournalist, Jérémy Lempin pays tribute to his former brothers-in-arms by showing the suffering endured by soldiers with PTSD and the consequences for their families.
