Midsummer Reverie

“Midsummer Reverie” is a short documentary film about midsummer in Montreal, Quebec, shot in July 2017. The idea follows from my work both as a street photographer and as a musician, bringing these labours of love together in one small homage to my home city, Montreal. Camera and Soundtrack by Rico.

«Midsummer Reverie» (Rêverie de la mi-été) est un court film documentaire à propos de la mi-été à Montréal, Québec, tourné en juillet 2017. L’idée découle de mon travail à la fois en tant que photographe et en tant que musicien, réunissant ces deux labeurs d’amour en un mini hommage à ma ville d’origine, Montréal. Caméra et bande sonore par Rico.

Plateaupolis

Le Plateau Mont-Royal is an actual geological plateau that was formed 125 million years ago by the volcanic activities of the Mount Royal. Le Plateau begins with the steep Sherbrooke slope (cyclists beware), sits on the right of the mountain, and ends north and east with the railroad tracks.

This Montreal arrondissement affectionately known as La République du Plateau was built in the 1900s as a working-class neighborhood, and has over the years become a much fabled area. Unlevel floors and leaking windows notwithstanding, le Plateau stands today as cultural stronghold, retaining most of its small town spirit centered around Mont-Royal avenue.

Portraits, not in landscape

Here are some more street portraits from “Portraits in a City”.

These didn’t make it to the front page as they did’t fit the wider landscape format of the slideshow.

iPhoneography happens

Sometimes the best camera is the one you can pull out and shoot in less than ten seconds.

Des fois, le meilleur appareil photo est celui qu’on peut sortir et déclencher en moins de dix secondes.
