In the exhibit “Les trois dimensions” Bertrand Thibeault, Marc Hébert and Stéphane Lafrance present three different approaches to photography in the same room where images and voices from these artists will make you discover emotions and dreams. A short description will accompany each photograph and visitors may also listen to it on their tablet or their smart phone. Landscapes, digital creations, architectures and portraits will be on display.
