I recently purchased this lovely press photo of Évariste – or, actually, Joël Sternheimer since it’s regarding his work as a scientist. Aside from the fact that I’d never seen this photo before, the most interesting thing about it is that it seems to have been produced for the British press and all the text on the back of the image is in English. I wonder whether there was ever an English language press article about Joël / Évariste? I might have to do some digging…
Post Script – Here’s a message from Évariste:
“I recall this photograph being taken by l’Express news magazine, around a couple of days before a debate with physicist Louis Leprince-Ringuet, organized on February 7, 1972 at Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris, by a then young student, future Agriculture Minister and European Commissioner Michel Barnier, who later took some responsibilities in the fight against pesticides (1). This had followed the censorship of Michel Treguer’s “Evariste et les sept dimensions” in January 1972 (http://unite.jean-jaures.org/unite/pdf/U001_01571.pdf).
