Deddi shows a body that is slowly taken over by illness. It is the body of the photographer’s father. As a viewer, you almost have the feeling that you are out of place as a party in this story, in which a, generally abstract, illness takes on a personal face.

Chantal Spieard, currently living in Amsterdam, was born in 1974. After graduating in 2000 from the Utrecht University of Arts where she studied Photography, she nowadays works as a freelance photographer represented by the agency Foto Formation in Amsterdam.

This guide focuses on the meaning and significance of photobooks concerning health care environments. Heart-rending, intimate stories on matters of life, sickness, death and personal loss, are observed and experienced by consecutive generations of photographers working in the documentary tradition.
