Celebrating Women in Science at Aéroports de Paris

For two months, until May 8th, 2015, the millions of passengers going through the terminals of the Parisian airports will discover an exclusive exhibit of the portraits of five extraordinary women in science. Brigitte Lacombe, internationally renowned French photographer, has traveled the world to capture the spirit and passion of the Laureates of the 2015 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards.

A series of 16 photos taken in Prof. Yi Xie’s lab in China, in Prof. Thaisa Storchi Bergmann’s observatory in the mountains of Chili, in the emblematic hall of Oxford University where Prof. Dame Carol Robinson works, in Prof. Rajâa Cherkaoui El Moursli’s classroom in Morocco, and in Prof. Molly S. Shoichet’s Canadian lab are currently on view in the most visited areas of the airports.

A distinguished photographer

Brigitte Lacombe has worked with some of the most prestigious magazines in the world, such as Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. Her sensitivity and interest in human nature have led to her recognition as a major portrait photographer. She has photographed Hollywood’s most talented women, such as Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep and Tilda Swinton. Her work with the five Laureates will contribute to changing how people see women in science.

The 10th year of Aéroports de Paris’ commitment

2015 marks the 10th anniversary of Aéroports de Paris’s partnership with the L’Oréal Foundation in benefit of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science program. "Aéroports de Paris has been engaged in supporting women in science since 2006. Each year, we support this cause and offer exceptional visibility to increase public awareness,” said Benjamin Perret, Aéroports de Paris' communications Director.
