Louis Pouzin // Le Monde

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be commissioned to photograph Louis Pouzin, the French inventor of the datagram and many of the early processes adopted by the internet. On the day I photographed him he was receiving the 'Queen Elizabeth prize for Engineering' as one of the five internet and web pioneers. Pretty nifty on the old computer for an Octogenarian. I'm sure I'll pretty clueless if I'm ever lucky enough to make it to his age.
