Photographer's Note

In the service of the intensive care,
there are monitorings and pressure gauges with oxygen.
There is still the odor of painting and not yet that of death.
There are pyjamas like uniform.
There are dignity and incomprehension on the glances. There are already the decorations but not yet the care.

The old man waits alone on his bed and looks at me.

Dans le service des soins intensifs,
il y a des monitorings et des manomtres oxygne.
Il y a encore l'odeur de la peinture et pas encore celle de la mort.
Il y a des pyjamas comme uniforme.
Il y a la dignit et l'incomprhension sur les regards.

Il y a dj le dcors mais pas encore les soins.

Le viel homme attend seul sur son lit et me regarde.
