His pictures were published in major international magazines like Paris Match, TIME, NewsWeek, Stern, Spiegel, l’Express, L’Espresso etc. In 1989, Agence France-Presse (AFP) gave him the opportunity to cover the First Intifada in Gaza and the West Bank. He also covered the First Gulf War in 1990, and later conflicts in Kurdistan, Somalia, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. Baz is currently AFP’s photo manager for the MENA region, but continues to work as a photographer on the field.
