Papa, François Halard


François Halard photographed his father Yves in his house in Les Vignères in the South of France during preceding days to his passing in 2016. Capturing the last moments shared together, the photographs witness an unusual approach for Halard. Papa explores a personal milieu within a career principally committed to interior and architectural photography. Contrary to François Halard’s habits, these photographs delve into the very intimate; quiet pictures of a withering body, a frail face, marked by years and wisdom and captured with affection and decency.
