Motion brings together the work of 11 Québec artists in a video anthology based on the theme of “motion,” understood in two ways: as movement and as a proposal.  The exhibition was organized and circulated by Galerie de l’UQAM, and curated by La Fabrique d’expositions, a collective of Montréal curators, Julie Bélisle, Louise Déry and Audrey Genois.

As a sales agent he travelled the Island extensively which enabled his photography of the rural landscape.
