Cause and Effect

Conversation, in French, Main galleries, 10 December 2016, 3pm

In this talk, Michel Boulet, CCA photographer, and Louise Désy, Curator, Photographs, will discuss the photographic coverage of environmental catastrophes. A native of Lac-Mégantic, Michel Boulet was on location during the railway disaster on 6 July 2013, capturing images during the first hours following the accident. This conversation situates the work within larger questions of personal perspectives in photography, as well as various approaches to the documentation of events.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition It’s All Happening So Fast.
