The “CESAR” series started in 2013. It is the artistic follow-up to a photographic report about the obstetrician’s job in operating theaters.
“CESAR” is about children portraits. They were all born through caesarean section and are all only a few seconds old. They all have survived.
These pictures are for Christian Berthelot the first representation of a new human being, unique and primitive.
