Famed French photojournalist Alexandra Boulat has died after failing to recover from a medically-induced coma.

Famed French photojournalist Alexandra Boulat has died after failing to recover from a medically-induced coma.

Boulat, 45, was the daughter of the Cosmos photo agency founder Annie and Life photographer Pierre Boulat. She began her career at Sipa Press before co-founding VII in 2001.

Boulat had been based in the West Bank for the last two years, where she had been working on projects including the rise of Islamic militant group Hamas. She suffered a brain aneurism in late June, after which she was put into a medically induced coma and flown to a hospital in Paris.

“Our dear friend Alexandra Boulat passed away peacefully in Paris today, October 5th, 2007,” said VII co-founder Gary Knight. “Her friendship, courage, spirit and creativity touched all of our lives and will remain dear memories always.”

ABC News has a selection of her images here, and PDN has an obituary here.
