The olds

Date ?

In addition to photography, I accompany dependent seniors. For some, I am the only social link. I work with them at home.
The days revolve around simple acts of daily life. If they are valid enough, we go out. During these walks, they sometimes give me confidences on their way of life.

Thanks to this daily presence, they accepted me into their intimacy. I was able to make the invisible visible. They are at the center of my professional and photographic project.

I have often photographed objects. They borrow from their experiences. They are part of their memory. Moreover, they are precious to them. Many old people have experienced war and know the price of “things”.

These images are a testimony of their daily lives.
