Portraits Of Newborn Taken Few Seconds After Birth

After seeing his son for the first time, the photographer Christian Berthelot had the idea to portrait some newborn few seconds after birth. The consequent series, “Cesar”, shows us a series of children different from the photos we are used to, in fact they are covered of blood and other substances, “like warriors who had just won their first battles”, as the author said.

All the children showed in these pictures experienced a Cesarean section, like the title suggests, and like the photographer’s son, his source of inspiration for this project.

CESAR will be shown in France during the Festival Circulations’ Festival Circulation (s) Exhibition from January 24 to March 8, 2015 at CENTQUATRE – PARIS

5 rue Curial in Paris (19th district)  FRANCE. Visit here for more info
