About

I have begin taking photos at the age of 11, taking my father’s Brownie Super 27 camera (without his permission) to shoot people throwing stones at soldiers in the street of Montreal, during the 1970 October crisis. I found out early that I was lot more attract by story than simply shooting for the sake of it. But I never took it seriously until a friend ask me in the 80s to make a photo road trip of him and his band in between Montreal and the city of Chibougamau (far north east of Quebec). Since them I produce different documentary mainly about social or humanitarian issues. What motivate me is helping group of people who suffer from injustice to gain media attention so their story can be known.

My work been publish in Reportage UK, Reporter SA, Stern, Life Force Magazine, Latitude Magazine, Photograph Magazine, Bayard group, Microsoft Mag and also in the Demotix and Corbis news wire.

I’m a Fuji ambassador for Canada.

Recent award (2014): First place at the Terra Bella Media international contest for my photos on the Roma people in Bosnia.
