Vivre Encore (1993)

Jean-Louis Courtinat



“Keep on Living” is a two-year immersion in the Institut Curie Pediatric Oncology Department in Paris. Moments of joy and happiness when the child is well. Pain and anguish when he’s not. Complicity and tenderness, affection and caressing hands. It’s warming and soothing. I tried to catch these moments as to keep a small glimpse of eternity.


French photographer Jean-Louis Courtinat was born in 1954. Deeply committed to socially conscious photography, he has done many reportages about social outcasts.
