This year’s theme led us to deliberate on our identity as a people in Québec via the sharp eye of six photographers from the province. Each one will present five photographs from a singular and personal project in a group exhibit at Saint-Laurent-de-Matapédia church, in the municipality of Matapedia.
To address the theme “Identities and Territories,” Judith Bellavance presents her sensitive, poetic project News of Hope and other Micro-Fictions, while Jean-François Hamelin exhibits Témiscamingue, a plastic research project bordering on the documentary. Michel Huneault for his part demonstrates a discreet example of photojournalism with a still painful topical issue, Mégantic’s Long Night. Joannie Lafrenière, meanwhile, contributes a personal and intimate series on taxidermy, The Woman Who Saw the Bear. Nigel Quinn, an ecologically-sensitive photographer, unveils a series of portraits of Magdalen Islanders with What Remains. Finally, Catherine Tremblay invites the public to discover the link that joins human beings to their favorite landscapes with her collaborative project reVisiting.
