I began shooting photos at the age of 11, taking my father’s Brownie Super 27 camera 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 fall 1983 to make a photo road trip of him and his band in between Montreal and the city of Chibougamau (far north east of Quebec). The result was a lot more about the band member's emotions, their struggling, joy, fears, etc. Since then, I produce different documentary mainly about social and humanitarian issues. What motivate me, is helping group of people who suffer from injustice to gain media attention so their story can be known.
