In France, she works on the Alzheimer disease.
In Russia, she completed a work on the fight of the kalmouk people against the disappearance of their identity.
In Turkey, violence towards the woman. At Lebanon, the post-war year of 2006, and brittleness of a Lebanon divided between the various communities. In 2009, Afghanistan, the war against school. In 2011 and 2012, Syria, the revolt in Homs.
Freelance since 2002, she publishes in the French press, for the institutions and editors. she diffuses her photographies for Le Monde, VSD, Nouvel Observateur, La Croix, Le Pelerin, La Vie, L'express, Le Point, Courrier international, Le Parisien and now she is working also for Paris Match

I was struck by the right look of Caroline Poiron, some will say detached and almost analytical, like to protect herself.
But this relative detachment is contradicted by the covered subjects and the time spent on these subjects. “She collects the vibration of the human beings, the intensity of the situations. She is on the heart of her job of photo reporter” in a society with cultural and economic changes , it becomes more and more difficult to live from its passion.
