I was recently featured in Canadian Geographic along with two other great Ottawa photographer's: Tony Fouhse and David Trattles. Senior editor at Ottawa Magazine, Sarah Brown, wrote the article for the national magazine. The story is about culture in the Capital and features photos from all three of us. They chose to showcase my Kiss Fans photos from Bluesfest a couple years back.
The article mentions my recent Vimy project and more precisely the photos I had displayed during my One Night Stand at La Petite Mort gallery. Here's an excerpt from the story. (full article here)
Snapshot number three: Rémi Thériault, a rising star on the local photography scene, is a transplanted Acadian Prince Edward Islander. At a springtime “One Night Stand” displaying eight photos at Ottawa’s La Petite Mort Gallery, Thériault had space to hang just two photos from his ongoing “Vimy” series. It was a battle that defined Canada as a nation — and for three years now, Thériault has travelled to France to visit the Canadian National Vimy Memorial site, documenting it in summer and winter, at dawn and dusk. The winter series, in particular, has a haunting beauty, the site desolate, a dusting of snow on the picturesque ridge that was once a churning war zone of mud and death.
