Rosette, Mauricette et Roby.
Photographs by Zoé Beausire.
Kominek Books, 2012. 64 pp., 30 color illustrations, 9¼x6½".
The photo book by Zoé Beausire (*1987) document in a very empathetic and personal way the artist’s preoccupation with the process of aging and the resulting bodily and mental changes within the artist‘s closest circle of family. The photos are posing questions about physical adjacency and the relation of life and death. In a symbolical as well as narrative way, she shows drastically and intensely the inevitable process of body changes, of alteration in social life and in social participation. Contentwise the works complement one another to a deeply touching construct of hard reality, gentle narrative sightings of details, fragmented memories and staged sequences of dreams. In this way a new, direct and at the same time very empathetic view is generated on the omnipresent topic of demographic changes in our society.
