He has been featured extensively in publications such as The New York Times, Vogue Italia, M le Monde, British Journal of photography, Financial Times and This is Paper.

Reaching for Dawn reflects on the impact and trauma caused by the Liberian Civil Wars (1989-2003). Made over a two year period, Verdier travelled across the country, from the diamond mines of Gbarpolu, to the fishing harbours of Harper, and through the dilapidated neighbourhood of Westpoint, documenting people, stories and the community. Analog photographs made with a large format camera, offer two interweaved narratives, one in black & white and the other in colour.
