Éric Lajeunesse holds a degree in photography from the College Marsan in Montreal and is very active professionally, both in Quebec and internationally. He has made numerous exhibitions and won awards and recognitions, including the PX3, Prix de la Photographie in the category publicity in Paris (France) in 2008.
A photographer favoring analog photography, he uses his art to capture the ephemeral - no editing or artifice - and develops his images by hand. By opting for black and white, he hopes to capture the raw emotion from his subjects. "From Kathmandu to New York from Paris to Havana, the project Errance speaks of myself. From a photographer and his camera. From a man in the street, in a subway, at the table of a café, in the heart of a factory. Errance is my story. The story of a man in search of his fellowmen. To find them, I intervene in their daily lives, in areas where they work, in places where they live. Through the eye of my camera, I observe them and immortalise their most beautiful, most real, most human posessions." Says he.
Errance is the search for the human in his environment. It's his capture on film and paper. Far from a quest for human misery, this exhibition reflects the vision which the artist has of the people. Here, everywhere, today, for tomorrow too.
