This book offers texts that discuss the considerable work of the photographer Bertrand Carrière and in which we find a very large collection of photographs. The artist has made several trips, both in Quebec and in Europe, and has produced a large number of documentary photographs.
His family albums or travel albums, whether in the Gaspé Peninsula, Ireland or Dieppe, are a testimony to a sharpened look at the 20th century.
Works from series such as Polaroids of War, Dieppe or Ce qui demeure will move the reader. The artist’s photographs, both personal and universal, convey a sense of history tinged with great humanism. The texts published in this book underline how the photographer stands out. The artist himself signs one of the texts, in which he makes us relive with humor and sensitivity his many journeys.
