Living together

For two years I collaborated with an interdiciplinary social sciences research team. The subject was the treatment of disabled and dependant persons in their social or family life. I met twenty of them, I asked them to speak about the social players who daily took care of them. These twenty meetings reveal situations that may be sometimes difficult but can be overcame thanks to relatives and skilled workers. These twenty photographies summerize the diversity of each situation that depends on the place of residence, the home, the specialised insitute, parametres that sometimes may interact. Variabilty can arise from the gender, the socio-professional category, the age, the type of disability.

Under this variability appear many factors : demographic variations, family pathways, getting relatives who feel concerned. An important one is the public policies that lead to complex local applications. National decisions are the result of overlapping processes and have an affect on the supply of specialised institutes and home services. A very demanding research and a photographer wishing for exploring the interface between science and society make possible this very project. It relates to the new visual anthropology and is careful with people's right to control use of their image.
