In an essay for the World Photography Organisation, Berthelot explains CESAR in depth:
“My perspective on the birth has changed. I discovered the dangers of birth. It is for this reason that I have decided to show the beginnings of a new human being, during the first seconds of his life. I am interested in those first seconds only.
And what continues to amaze me is that it never stops. With each passing moment, a child is born, from all over the world, all the time. Birth never stops.
Currently, I continue to work on the theme of the birth of humans, but also the birth of the animals. Birth as a universal theme, but also because sometimes death arrives. And there is love too.”
