The words of some remain in my mind: “My wound is deep and may never heal”. What remains of this injury? How to forget it or rather how to overcome it? How do you live with a face, even if it looks slightly marked but which will never be the same again? It is this transformation, this long interior work that inspired him. In 2011, Armand Rouleau did photographic work for the documentary film: "La vie disfigured". From these words entrusted, from these intense and fascinating encounters, was born the need to extend this photographic work with Broken Gueules of contemporary conflicts,… In parallel with the images, it seemed important, to go further, to have other points of view, that of caregivers and to hear the words of these bruised people.
Armand died before he could exhibit his photos and this book is his last testimony.
This book was produced in partnership with the Union des Injured de la Face et de la Tête - les Gueules cassées.
