De Viguerie’s work is regularly published in Newsweek, The New York Times, Stern, Paris Match, Geo, Figaro Magazine, Marie Claire, The Guardian, and La Repubblica, and has been printed in countless other titles. In summer 2008, she shot a cover story for Paris Match in Afghanistan, attracting international attention, on a group of Taliban militants who had ambushed and killed French troops. She followed this up that autumn with a feature on pirates in Somalia, completed just as the topic began to make the headlines around the world. The completed pirate project has subsequently been published in over 40 titles in over 20 countries around the world.
Among her numerous accolades, De Viguerie can count a best war photo reportage award at the 2010 Bayeux Festival, a World Press Photo award, and the Canon Prize for a Female Photojournalist, at the 2006 Perpignan festival. That year, she also released her first book, Regards Croises, about Afghanistan. In 2011, she published Carnets de Reportages du XXIe siecle, with journalist Manon Querouil.
