was my new book, VIVRE,
by oncologist François Goldwasser and photographer Jeremy Stigter. This book came out through a devoted collaboration between these two men. Trying to bring humanity and straight forwardness to people suffering from cancer.
Translated press about the book, publisher SEUIL, France:
The cross road between portraits and interviews with patients, their close family and medical team. An illness which brings to reality the tremendous change to life. Trying to see and understand the everyday challenge, a life without stability, the threat of death. This book tries to tell the stories of people and a chronicle illness, out patient treatment and new coming treatments.
To talk about cancer,
through photography with the sense of humanity, therefore only through the lens of a great photographer like Jeremy Stigter. He makes everyone participate and the book brings us to the point, where the necessity of understanding and putting a sick person in the centre of everyone’s preoccupation.
Everyone who accepted,
to participate in this project, gave very generously of their most intimate thoughts, reflections and doubts. With the greatest of sensibility and dignity.
