In December 2004 I went to Chamonix with a small film crew in order to make a documentary, at the motherís request, about a missing climber. He had arrived in Chamonix a few months before, during the summer, in order to lead some army cadets on a climbing expedition as part of their training.
On the evening of his birthday, after a night celebrating in the town centre with his team, he disappeared during the walk back to the campsite.
I took this photograph after the gendarmes had heroically arranged for their diving team to spend yet another day searching for his body, which had proved, once again, fruitless.
His body has never been found.
