Didier Lefèvre (1957-2007) was a French photojournalist. His photos have appeared in many French magazines, including L'Express and Éditions Ouest France. He was best known for co-authoring the book The Photographer, which told the story of his travels with a Médecins Sans Frontières mission during the Soviet–Afghan War.
Lefèvre shot more than 4,000 photos on his 1986 MSF mission. He suffered from chronic furunculosis; he lost fourteen teeth after the MSF mission as a consequence of malnutrition, exhaustion, and stress from his experiences. Nonetheless, Lefèvre returned to Afghanistan seven more times later in life.
