Victor d’Allant is a cultural anthropologist whose work includes field research on French truck drivers in the Middle East, mental health issues in India for the World Health Organization, and agricultural development in Burkina Faso for the World Bank.

His photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris and published in Newsweek, several World Health Organization publications, and many magazines in Europe and Asia. The video blog he produced for the Skoll Foundation’s online community received an Honoree Mention at the Webby Awards (Webbies).

Victor holds an MA/ABD in Cultural Anthropology from the Sorbonne in Paris and an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. In his own words: “I use my Leica to compensate for a strong case of prosopagnosia.” Victor is currently working on a book trilogy: “Blood. Love. And other crazy stories.”
