Portrait of Hortense
ortense Thellier was 97 years old. Suffering from many health problems, she lived on the third floor of a building without an elevator. Operated four times, her great tiredness and her great age, prevented her from leaving her home: “I have too many health problems, I can no longer go down the stairs, I can no longer climb them either, so I stay at home alone,” she sighs. Without children, she has no relatives, all deceased.
Portrait of Pierre, blind
At 18 months, Pierre* fell, causing an angioma whose operation caused atrophy of the optic nerve. Since then, he suffers from an almost total visual impairment which still allows him to distinguish some forms.
