Jacques Nadeau, a photojournalist from Montreal, has had his life's work stolen which he says comprises of 30,000 - 50,000 photos taken over 35 years. 

CBC News are reporting that five hard drives containing the 35 year's worth of images had been stolen during a break-in at Jacques Nadeau's home earlier this week. 

Prints of one of Jacques' most iconic photos captured in 1981 of the then premier René Lévesque playing pool were also taken. 

Jacques told CBC News: "People can take anything here in my house but not that, not my pictures."

Jacques Nadeau now has to start rebuilding his portfolio of images. 

It's a stark reminder of how important it is for photographers to ensure they have several back-ups of their images.
