"I started taking pictures of my brother Guillaume and his partner Sonia in 2008; both living behind closed doors with the alcohol addiction. In this closed doors where I found my place and felt good, I photographed their relationship, the intimate moments, happy or unhappy, that I share with them. Unfortunately reality quickly gained the upper hand, and its place between us. They both died. At no moment did I ever think about the end. Strangely, I considered them indestructible. This book is an homage and a testimony of their love and of my love for them."
A very intimate series, on living a certain life together, on the daily life with alcohol addiction, the simple and "normal" moments, and the difficult "blank" moments. Transcriptions of short conversations appear side-by-side with the images and bring context - and a certain form of depth - to the images.
