Roundtable on the photobook

Hosted by Louis Perreault

On the occasion of Rencontres on Tour, Rencontres will be presenting a roundtable on the photographic book hosted by Louis Perreault. This artist lives and works in Montreal, and his practice consists of personal photography projects as well as the publishing projects he collaborates on. Founder and co-director of Éditions du Renard, he teaches photography at Cégep André-Laurendeau. He also collaborates on the magazine Ciel variable, to which he contributes reviews of photobooks.
