The beauty of a people

India - Sri Lanka

The exhibitionThe Beauty of a People, India - Sri Lanka , presents my encounter with the astonishing cultural and social richness of the peoples of India and Sri Lanka, photographic expedition 2017 and 2019. Thanks to the photography, I was able to explore far beyond their exoticism, the warmth and beauty of the people and their country.

 

I sought by photography to capture through the vibrant colors that reign everywhere, the scent of spices, the quiet happiness of everyday life in the often stunning and noisy conditions of cities. Despite the state of poverty, filth and indigence, we find deep down in the people, a kind of serenity that emerges in a fabric of pride, courage and almost mystical resignation.

Are we that different?

The exhibition Are we so different?            

Brings together 22 color photographs, large formats, taken at random from the circumstances of life. Some portraits were captured on Wellington Street in Sherbrooke while others were captured during numerous photo expeditions to Canada, Europe, Asia and elsewhere. Among the fundamental questions that guide the photographer on a daily basis, he is more concerned by the commonalities that connect people to each other than by the apparent differences that would be likely to distance them from each other. And that's exactly what he wants audiences to take away from his photos to which he adds a brief staging and a few punchy quotes. You should know that the photographer does not content himself with capturing the moment, he takes the time to establish a warm and human contact. This moment of taming takes place in both directions: the photographer would never allow himself to steal the image, he takes the time to enter into a relationship, letting the other come to him, he approaches with respect never not wanting to force the note. Each photo arrives at its own pace.

Sherbrooke black and white - hope

Project Overview

Over the years, the city of Sherbrooke has been the subject of many artistic projects. Indeed, there has been no lack of studies, research of all varieties including books on the Queen of the Eastern Townships.

However, this is an unusual project: an exhibition of black-and-white photos of Sherbrooke, expanded by citizens' reflections on the theme determined by the initiator - that of -  hope.

This project differs from those presented previously, as it incorporates the collaboration of various personalities of the City. This complicity is the primary objective of the project's creator, Marcel Morin.

Insofar as Marcel is concerned, it does not suffice to present only imagery as captured through his camera lense - rather he seeks to collect the personal sentiments of fifty Sherbrookois, who are informed by various environmental spheres, inter alia, political, educational, cultural, business, sports etcetera.

Marcel's sincere desire is to support his photography of Sherbrooke through the writings of it's inhabitants.
