Julie Gauthier was born in Saguenay. It is with an eye sometimes mischievous, sometimes offbeat that she captures what goes unnoticed, like time. She tries to grow in her field of vision winks or smirks. It may not be the headlines, let’s just say that she documents her present in a slow and poetic way.
A self-taught photographer, Simon Emond was born in Hébertville in 1992. He lives and works in Métabetchouan, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. Simon enjoys listening to the humans he photographs. His creation is part art and part documentary. The themes he pursues – vulnerability, intimacy, and identity – increasingly and organically have become a form of activism, one that is keen to show the unconventional beauty of the faces he uncovers.
