Photographic Treatment” by Laurence Aëgerter
Winner of the Nestlé Prize 2015/2016 of the Grand Prix Images Vevey, “Photographic Treatment” explores the effects of images on people suffering from senile dementia. Conducted in collaboration with neurologists, gerontologists and psychologists, this research aims to provide a therapeutic tool based on images, in order to improve the wellbeing of patients. Following an “olfactory” exhibition created at the last Festival Images Vevey, this work by Laurence Aëgerter now takes the form of a publication in 5 volumes designed by Erik Kessels. Advance copies of these books will be available at Dewi Lewis at the Cosmos in Arles.
