Portrait of me photographed by Daniel Héon, in front of my Montréal Children's Hospital documentary project. This was my first permanent public installation.

Mon portait photographié par Daniel Héon, devant mon projet sur l'Hôpital de Montréal pour enfants. Il s'agit de mon première installation publique permanente.

(En) I am a MontréaI based architectural and documentary photographer. My first complete cycle with the medium was during my undergrad in Architecture and Engineering. Prior to that, I credit my compositional awareness to an after school art program. Like many before me, shifting from the brush to the camera was organic. My inspiration stems from the built environment. Urban centres with their architecture and forms have always fascinated me. I believe that a building is more than a typical shelter; it shapes our interaction with the space it defines. This infuses cities with a collective sense that shifts over time. I am also enthralled with documentary and photojournalistic work. The mélange of text and imagery to convey emotion, situation or condition is key as I strive to develop and share my experience with the medium

(Fr) Je suis un photographe d'architecture et documentaire basé à MontréaI. Mon premier cycle complet avec le médium était au cours d'étude en architecture et ingénierie. Auparavant, j'attribue ma sensibilité a la composition à un programme d'art. Comme beaucoup avant moi, passer du pinceau à la caméra était naturel. Mon inspiration vient de l'environnement bâti. Les centres urbains avec leur architecture et leurs formes m'ont toujours fasciné. Je croit qu'un bâtiment est plus qu'un abri typique; ça forme notre interaction avec l'espace qu'il définit. Cela insuffle aux villes un sentiment collectif qui change avec le temps. Je suis également passionné par le travail documentaire et photo-journalistique. Le mélange de texte et d'images pour transmettre une émotion, une situation ou une condition est essentielle car je m'efforce de développer et de partager mon expérience avec le médium.
