L'Agitation Tranquille

Photographer for 40 years, Rejean Meloche has divided his career between press coverage and snapshots. A privileged witness years of Quebec effervescence, he fixed on film thousands of events and personalities for various media from the specialized press and the general public, including the Montréal-Matin and Le Devoir.

His work was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Cultural and Community Centre Henri-Lemieux in LaSalle in 1991. Winner of various awards, he still drags his camera around the city as a freelance photographer.
