CurArte (Healing + Art + Emotion)
CurArte is my new book and expresses my personal recognition to the professionals who look after the health of others. Pandemics have shown the extent to which research and health are necessary for all and, above other priorities, there is no doubt that the dedication and heroism of the members of the health community has multiplied to the point of exhaustion.
High-risk working conditions, endless working hours, different strategies almost every day and dealing with a smiling face to convey empathy and tranquility to the patient. What less to document that effort!
For four decades, since I photographed the conditions in which people lived in a psychiatric hospital, and until my last images in a nursing home affected by coronavirus, my passion has been to witness the efforts of professionals that leave all of it for others when it is most needed. I have tried to express these feelings through emotion.
