When sectarian violence thrust the Central African Republic into the spotlight at the end of last year, there were relatively few journalists on hand to document what was to become a massive humanitarian crisis.

Yet among that handful of reporters, two photojournalists were on the ground covering the story for Le Monde and Paris Match magazine: Michaël Zumstein and Pierre Terdjman. Their photos are now on display at the Visa pour l'Image international photojournalism festival in Perpignan, in the South of France. We caught up with them.
