Age: 17 on Gandalf’s scale… (36)
Tell us about yourself.
I have lived in many places in the province of Quebec (Canada),
but Montreal is my home since 15 years now. Amongst the many
things I have studied, Arts and Communications have always been
in the centre of my interests. Since I stopped playing bass in a local
post-hardcore band, photography has taken the lead of my creative side.
I also like guacamole, my wife, my dog and cynical humour.
What do you like to shoot?
Everything! But I’m not into the cute stuff.
What camera do you use?
Damn! I got so many… But mostly my Leica M7 and a Ricoh R1s.
What would you say the main narrative behind your images are?
I like to capture a sincere moment, little things that pop out of our daily life. The beauty of boredom.
What drives you as photographer?
I often think about how photography gives me the opportunity to find
my own place in a world that I thought I would never fit in. Who I am,
why I am here and where I’m going are no longer questions.
Who do you look up to in the photographic world?
My top 4 is definitely: Daido Moriyama, Anders Peterson, Mark Cohen and Jacob Aue Sobol.
Which photo in your gallery is your favourite, why is that?
The one with the hand holding a cup with a straw. It’s what I want my work to look like in the future.
You only shoot black and white, why is that?
My photographic vision is in black and white. I just like it better for now.
