Swiss photographer René Robert has died of hypothermia in Paris at the age of 85 after spending nine hours on a sidewalk as a result of a fall, without anyone helping him.

The death occurred on the night between January 18 and 19, when the artist went for a walk near the central Plaza de la República in the French capital, as revealed by his friend the journalist Michel Mompontet on the France Info radio station. .

Robert was born in 1936 in Friborg (Switzerland). He began his career in photography in the field of advertising and fashion, until reaching celebrity with his portraits of the world of flamenco. In a semblance signed by his friend Mompontet in the Spanish digital magazine

De Flamenco

,

the journalist emphasizes that his images, "always in black and white, inspired and splendid, have occupied a position of honor in the great book of the images of the history of Flemish art”. And also remember that his was the portrait that served as the poster for Camarón's concerts in 1986 and 1987 in Paris, as well as many other emblematic ones of Paco de Lucía, Agujetas, El Chocolate, Chano Lobato, Fernanda de Utrera, El Torta, La Susi, La Yerbabuena or Aurora Vargas.

It seems that nous dit des choses sur ce que nous sommes en train de devenir l'histoire édifiante de la mort de René Robert et reprise bien au-delà de nos frontières.

Puisse-t-elle serve as a revelation to our consciences.

"Firefighters, alerted by a homeless person, arrived around 6:30 in the morning," Mompontet said on French television.

"[Robert] stayed more than nine hours in the cold, alone, until death."

The medical team at Cochin hospital were unable to revive him.

“If this death can be used for something, it would be this: when a person is lying on the sidewalk, even if we are in a hurry, let's check their condition.

Let's stop for a moment“, begged the journalist on France Info. And launched the following question: “Full Paris, the city of light, bars, restaurants.

Humanity, so inhuman, and this question: how have we been able to get to this point?

This tragic death reveals something horrible about our solidarity with one another.”
