“PIÈCES À CONVICTION” [Incriminating Evidence] by Stéphane Najman

The book of photographs “Pièces à conviction” [Incriminating Evidence] by Stéphane Najman transports you directly to the core of humanity. It captures nothing more or less than its protagonists views on the passage of time. The photographer’s fine work is highlighted by insightful and poetic text. In addition, a documentary by Charlie Marois depicts this in-depth look into the private lives of a number of Montrealers and is offered to you free of charge. The launch will take place on October 2 at 6:00 p.m. at Espace 40 Mile End.

“Pièces à conviction” is the product six years of work. It is also a photographer’s perspective on time that has passed after 30 years in the profession and being well on his way to half a century. Stéphane Najman freezes reality by bringing forth the proof and suggesting the trial. The project accompanies the models on their internal journeys with disarming sensitivity. The models find themselves naked and facing their past and present realities, which can be troubling, joyful, unexpected, and occasionally, very surprising.

Lagoon by Marie-Michele Hayeur

“Lagoon” is one of my favorite shoots I’ve done so far. The editorial was done exclusively for “Press the Fashion” for their three-year anniversary edition.

It was done in collaboration with Arielle from Dulcedo, Camille from folio, Catherine Lavoie from Judy Inc. and stylist Elise Lachance. This was an amazing day in and around an indoor pool.

Kurt Perschke’s RedBall Montreal as seen by Gilles Lauzon

Kurt Perschke’s RedBall Montreal as seen by Gilles Lauzon

After 11 countries and 19 cities, the RedBall Project arrived in Montreal on August 31.

7 days, 7 different sites, from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

This huge red ball, with its imposing yet fun presence, reinvents familiar spaces and highlights places that city-dwellers normally would not notice.

I love these projects that seem to have no reason; they can brighten our daily routine (free of charge!).

COPYRIGHT LAW – NEW RESOURCE!

COPYRIGHT LAW – NEW RESOURCE!

November 7, 2012 was a significant day for professional image creators in Canada. One this day, Bill C-11 was passed, finally recognized independent professional photographers ownership of copyright works they produce as part of their work.

Canadian photographers are now the first owners of the copyright of the images they produce rights, and by default, as are particular illustrators, musicians, painters and writers. This applies to both photographs commissioned by a client and paid by them as photographs taken outside of a commercial context.

With a long history of fighting to change Copyright Law in favor of artists in Canada, now that we have seen the change CAPIC would like to ask that professionals in the industry use their voice for a new purpose – to spread knowledge. CAPIC has created these videos as resources to empower professionals in the industry (and supporters of the industry) to educate their public, clients and other creators about the changes to Copyright Law. We encourage you to take what you have learned here, and share the key lessons.

Promotional work for a short film starring Ritchie Montgomery – By Ken Remark

Promotional work for a short film starring Ritchie Montgomery – By Ken Remark

Had the pleasure of being behind the scenes and doing promotional work for the short film called, ‘Call Me Cappy’, directed by Maja Holzinger and starring Ritchie Montgomery (Django Unchained, True Detective) as Wally, a bowling alley attendant in a boring marriage that has invested all his hope in a mail-in sweepstakes. Beautifully written, comical and endearing. The film will be showing in the next round of international film festivals. The cast and crew were delightful and Ritchie was the life of the party.
