Alexandra Boulat (1962 - 2007) was a French photographer born in Paris.
With a focus on news, conflicts, and social issues, Boulat covered subjects ranging from child trafficking in Romania to an Yves Saint Laurent fashion show. From 1991 to 1999, Boulat documented the conflict in Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo. She also covered the fall of the Taliban in Afghanistan, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the role of women in Islamic nations, and the invasion of Iraq.
In June 2007, she suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm, and spent three weeks in a hospital in Israel in a medically induced coma. She was moved to France, where she remained in a coma. Thousands of colleagues and fans had expressed support for her. Boulat died in her sleep in Paris on October 5, 2007.
