Retired // 2014-2016  // Agnès DHERBEYS
Derniers instants dans le magasin familial, qui ferme après 3 générations. Romans-sur-Isère, France, le 23 mars 2014. Robert Dherbeys a d'abord travaillé comme prothésiste dentaire jusqu'à ce que son laboratoire ne fasse faillite dans les années 1980. Il devient représentant pour diverses marques, faisant d'abord du porte-à-porte puis devenant finalement salarié pour la maison Berger. Licencié économique en 1993, il décide de travailler avec sa femme dans le magasin familial de linge de maison. Symptomatique de la crise économique qui sévit dans la ville et avant tout d'une activité devenue obsolète, la boutique endettée doit fermer en 2014. Il vit désormais de sa retraite de 1 100 euros mensuels environ. Last goodbye to the 3 generations old shop, Romans-sur-Isère, France, 23rd of March 2014. Robert Dherbeys officially closed the shop on the 22d of March 2014. He used to live his life as a dental technician until the laboratory closed in the 1980's. To make a living for his family, he became a sale representative, for various brands – the last one alcohol "Berger" being in financial difficulties, saked him in 1993. Robert Dherbeys then took over his wife shop, opened first by his own grand mother and own father: Robert Dherbeys refused to enjoy fully his early retirement, fearing the inactivity as pest. But the shop was loosing money the last 2 years, and at almost 70 years old, had to take a loan to pay the shop debts. This was the point when he realized he couldn't keep this activity at all. From upper middle class in the 1980's, the family went down to a difficult situation. Nowadays widower, Robert Dherbeys lives with less than 1 100 euros per month. Agnès Dherbeys / MYOP
