Geronto: how ? why ?
“Geronto was an old alphabet lost in a church of Lille who has been revived. He was there, alone, in a cold and dark corner. I saw him and warmed him with the friendly flash of my Nikon camera. The same day, in a flea market, I met someone who has become her ornemental partner. She could be found here and there, in the pages of an old catholic almanach of 1891.
I took both of them
with me back to Bordeaux where I married them some months later.
Geronto is a very sexy centenarian couple !
