Choosing and living - Treatment and quality of life of chronic renal patients
by André François
Description

While André François was developing the book The curve and the path (2008), he had the chance to get in touch with several chronic renal patients and their stories. Many of them lived in the countryside and needed to travel three times a week or move to a bigger city to have access to hemodialysis. By researching and getting deeper into the subject, the photographer got in contact with peritoneal dialysis, which although it could be done at home with more convenience, it is still not well known. Keeping that in mind, André decided to photograph stories of people who adhered to this treatment and could move on with their lives inside their homes while awaiting kidney transplant.
