Illumination Ste 14

The Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is presenting the iridescent photographs of Montreal-based photographer André Boucher in the Library’s Art Gallery.

André Boucher’s exhibit features photographic works from six different series, all having one very important trait in common: aside from mirroring effects, none of the photos has been digitally altered or retouched.

André Boucher prints his photographs on a variety of surfaces such as glass, stainless steel and paper. This allows him the flexibility of altering visual perceptions and keep the viewer guessing.

Boucher was born in Chicoutimi in 1950.  He developed his talents as a photographer early on in life.  A graduate in Communication Studies, Boucher worked as a reporter for the newspaper Le Soleil and later founded Groupe Image, a project he directed for several years.  Freelance photography work would ensue and subsequently it was a move towards contemporary art which gained him more recognition. He currently lives and works in Montreal. Boucher’s work has been shown throughout the province of Québec, and can be found in numerous private and museum collections.

His current artworks can be viewed at www.andreboucher.com

This exhibit runs until November 23, 2014.
