Kindred is a portrait exhibition printed entirely using permanent processes. Each photographer has submitted an image of someone within their community that they admire along with a description of their relationship to their subject. The result is an exhibition of people from all walks of life who are being celebrated through the photographic medium.
Kindred will first be popping up for two days in Montreal where we have one branch of our network within the photographic community. This exhibition is comprised of a large number of Quebec artists, allowing for a true exchange when the show is installed in Toronto this November.

Derek Crowe is an adventurer, storyteller and trail builder. I am inspired by his photographs and words which reflect a deep connection to the people, the land and the history of the North. Our paths often cross in the tiny town of Carcross, Yukon where he mentors First Nations youth building world renowned trails on their traditional lands. I photographed Derek as part of The Builders Project, a collaboration with writer Jenn Roberts to chronicle the collective history of Yukon mountain biking.

Étonnée par ma demande de la photographier, elle dit : « Pourquoi me prendre en photo alors qu’il y a tant de si belles jeunes filles ici ?». Captée dans un couloir du Tashi Chho dzong, une forteresse située à Thimphu, capitale du pays. Je m’y trouvais en même temps que des milliers de Bhoutanais pour le tsechu, un festival de danses masquées et sacrées, qui a lieu chaque année dans l’immense cours intérieure de la forteresse.

Pixie is a former art student of mine. She is as fascination and a compulsion in terms of capturing her through the fleeting presence of her portrait. Pixie lives in a world of her own. She is idiosyncratic, tremulous, chaotic. She exists in her space as a continuum. Messages abound everywhere; her body, her face, her space, a dress upon which is painted ‘Fuck’ and embroidered with ‘Sugar Free’

William Commanda était un aîné algonquin , chef spirituel et promoteur de la protection de l’environnement. Commanda fût chef de bande de Kitigàn-zìbì, près de Maniwaki, au Québec et officier de’ Ordre du Canada. Porteur d’espoir et exemple de courage, il a consacré une bonne partie de sa vie à semer la paix. À travers le Cercle des Nations qu’il conviait chez lui chaque année, il a pavé la voie vers la guérison de tous ceux qui y ont participé. Ses paroles empreintes de sagesse et d’humanité demeureront pour moi une source d’inspiration.

We adopted Qiuli on her first birthday in Nanchang, Jiangxi Province. We returned to China when she was 10 and cruised the Li River near Yangshuo, in the southern Guangxi Province, to view the region’s picturesque limestone peaks. Beth was extremely curious about the people, food, and small towns. Confronted with a befuddling culture that was both her own and foreign, she remained self-confident and sure of herself. She has since been my favored portrait model.

Chaque être humain recèle son lot de mystère et de souffrance intérieure. Exprimer cette souffrance dans une photo n’est pas tâche facile. Michèle Bolduc étant soprano, sa formation de chanteuse l’a familiarisée avec le jeu des émotions. D’emblée à son arrivée au studio, j’ai constaté qu’elle avait ce qu’on appelle communément du vécu. J’ai proposé à Michèle une approche détachée et mystérieuse; avec générosité, elle y a répondu intensément comme en témoigne cette photo.
