With a degree in photography obtained in Chalon-sur-Saône (France), David Himbert is an independent photographer based in Montréal since 1999. Passionate about international policy, he has a special interest in the balance of power, paying close attention since 2011 to the transition period started in Cuba, where the Castro revolution appears to be gradually giving way to a market economy.
He is also a boxing enthusiast, a sport he considers as one of humanity’s last protected areas where, away from trends and appearances, a man openly and frankly reveals himself in a rare moment of respect and truth.
David collaborates with various international media (L'Express, Los Angeles Times, Le Figaro, El Pais, Le Monde, Jeune Afrique, Mediapart, L'Obs, Dissent Magazine, Télérama, Courrier International, BuzzFeed, 6 Mois, Le Devoir, L'Inconvénient, L'Itinéraire, Le Point, Marianne, Politis, 14yMedio, etc.). He is represented in Paris by Hans Lucas Studio (partner of AFP), and in New York by Polaris Agency.
In 2017, David Himbert received in Montréal a Lux - Infopresse prize, in the “Photo reportage/News” category, for his work on the Cuban people during Fidel Castro’s funerals.
In 2018, he won a Silver Award in the “Photojournalism and Photo Essay” category of the 41st Annual National Magazine Awards (Canada).
