ÊTRE BEAU (Being beautiful)
A project by Frédérique Deghelt & Astrid Di Crollalanza
A photographic exhibition at the Musée de l’Homme from 4 December 2019 until 4 Junary 2021
It all began with my son Jim, who was 11 at the time. One day he said to me:
- I was normal when I was in your tummy and then you caught a disease.
- What does normal mean?
- It means being beautiful and not dribbling!
To mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the Musée de l’Homme is launching the Être beau exhibition, a series of portraits of people of all ages, from all backgrounds and all professions, who all share the fact that they are not seen as "normal". For three years, the writer Frédérique Deghelt and the photographer Astrid di Crollalanza recorded the images and voices of those who are generally never photographed and never heard; those we call the "disabled", without ever giving this word any definition other than a sense of something missing.
Twenty-six large and thought-provoking photographs encourage us to consider our own image and the place of Others in society. It is a chance to closely explore our human condition. Because being beautiful means being yourself.
