Carole – Aus der Norm| Carole – hors norme
For five years, photographer, Monica Beurer, followed the life of Carole Piguet in order to document the unusual life of an unusual woman. Carole Piguet has been suffering from Lobstein's disease (brittle bones) since birth and is handicapped., A "cripple," as she calls herself self-confident and with a healthy dose of aggressive self-assertion. Monica Beurer's photographs are not concerned with a "problem," but celebrate a woman full of grace and joy of living, a proud and adventurous spirit. Again and again, we see touching, close-up images of Carole Piguet's face, her amazing eyes that transcend the fragility of her body without hiding her suffering. They make us forget that this woman standing in the center of her world, like a graceful queen, is handicapped.
