Avril & A few thoughts


Fragmented moments over the past few months . . . producing images isn’t a problem, but finding the right output seems to be. I’ve always shot on a regular basis, whether what is captured is planned or merely candid moments of daily life. As of late I have had many conversations concerning the Internet as the final end point for photographs—images being digested too quickly by viewers and the loss of photography’s physicality. This is obviously not a new thought, I like to think of it as a kind of extension of In the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. I do not think I would swear off the Internet as a means of communicating and showing my work but I grow increasingly wary of the Internet being the end point of my images. I’ve been attempting to think of a way to change or find a new method to show them.

I would like to participate in the world around me and meet interesting people & strangers. Indeed, the photo booth project I've been working on the past few months has produced bizarre and amazing encounters--in real time--and yet has also revealed the difficulty in actually meeting people in a physical space. 

I have many ideas for projects that I think have some merit and would be worth exploring; but again, maybe it is difficult to create something meaningful when you are unsure of how you will show the photos in a physical way. What is important right now, I think, is to discuss these ideas with other creative people around me (and I am lucky because there are so many talented individuals in Montreal, and of course people of the Internet as well) and to keep producing work despite unknown conclusions. 

Best,
-Y
