PHOTO FEATURE ON SNAKE POISON
The world of snakes: Congo, 1962
Didier Henrioud travelled to the Congo in 1962 to photograph research on venomous snakes at the Institut Pasteur in Brazzaville. The photo report, which appeared in the World Health magazine in 1963, centres specifically on the extraction of venom from Bitis gabonica (Gabon viper) in order to produce anti-snakebite serum.
