Eglantine Lavogez
joins us

The Print Atelier is enthused to present Eglantine Lavogez and her diptych series titled "Getting Closer".

Eglantine Lavogez is a young photographer based in Paris. Her vision is characterized by a search of daily aesthetic and harmony to be found through her immediate environment.  As so many before her, she wonders around town, searching for an element or a structure that will catch her eye and push her to stop.

Photography allows her to get away from a confined universe and to create her own rules. The strength of her photographs resides in their spontaneity : nothing is forced, nothing is reflexive, everything is about instinct and the present moment.

"I  take  photos  for  the  aesthetic  pleasure,  it  feeds  my  graphic  view  of  the  world,  I  don’t  do  it  to  document. [...] Playing  with  colors  and  materials,  I  try  to  put  my  focus  on  detail,  cut  to  the  essential  and  give  relief  to  heaviness.  After  all,  who  says  we  can’t  find  excitement  in  the  boredom  of  routine?"


New Artist
Daniel Desmarais

We're excited to welcome new artist Daniel Desmarais at The Print Atelier !!!

Daniel worked as a humanitarian photographer and press photographer before moving on to Montreal’s cultural scene. He has worked in Pakistan, Ethiopia and Haiti on behalf of the United Nations. Winner of several prestigious awards, he has been showing his works in various exhibitions in Canada.

“As an artist, I like new experiences, I do not hesitate to dive into new adventures without questioning myself, these cognitive shocks change my view of what surrounds me.” - Daniel Desmarais

His first works with us Les yeux du ciel, consists of a series of aerial photographs of the Haitian territory taken during his helicopter trips in the country. The photos are structured around compositions and textures of the landscapes he has encountered.

Two great series by
Alana Riley

The Print Atelier is honoured to present in collaboration with Joyce Yahouda Gallery, 2 spectacular series by Alana Riley.

In her self-portraits titled, "Support System" and "The Pressure between you and me is enough to take a picture", Alana uses unpredictable human encounters as part of her photographic process.

Alana Riley is a photo/video-based artist, currently living in Montreal, Canada. She holds a B.F.A. from Concordia University in Montreal and an M.F.A. from the Roski School of Fine Arts at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Riley’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Canada, the United States, Europe and China.

In 2010, Riley was awarded the Pierre-Ayot Prize by the City of Montreal and the Association of Contemporary Art Galleries (AGAC), as well as being nominated as a finalist of the Emerging Photographers of Canada by the Magenta Foundation. Riley has participated in artist residencies in Quebec, Ireland and Germany. Alana Riley’s work is represented by Joyce Yahouda Gallery and her works are also available through The Print Atelier.

"The Pressure between you and me is enough to take a picture"

For this series, the artist entered stangers’ work environments and asked to take a photo with them, with the shutter-release cord placed between their bodies. The photo was therefore taken at the moment of closest physical contact.

"Support System"

For this series, Riley invited strangers passing by her studio in downtown Montreal to come up and lie on top of her, for the duration of a shooting sequence of a medium-format roll of film of 10 frames. One image was chosen as the final portrait.


New works by
Guillaume Hébert

We are excited to launch a new series by Guillaume Hébert developed during his recent trip to Europe.

Guillaume’s work is related to a form of expressionism. He captures the passage of time and changes by noticing the small elements of an ever evolving life journey.

What he is looking for at first and foremost, are unusual and transitory scenes that nobody notices despite their interest, incredible colour schemes or emotional evocation. Observation is the key to his approach.


Rachel Wolfe
New Artist

We are proud to introduce new artist Rachel Wolfe at the The Print Atelier !

Rachel Wolfe is an interdisciplinary artist whose images and installations create a sensual and emotive view the relationship between Vision and Body.

Her monolithic image and text, Omniscient, recently won 1st place by the jury in the Imagining New Eurasia exhibition at Asia Culture Center in Gwanju, South Korea. She holds an MFA from Otis College of Art and Design. Rachel lives and works in Los Angeles and Oslo.

"The essential questions I work with are meditations on the Nature of Desire, or what moves a Body? I create art to consider aesthetic experience as a forum for conversations about the relationship between Vision and the Body."

"I seek to balance this spectrum of cognition, perception and emotion through the artwork I make centered on the felt senses. These art are not about my own emotion or feeling persay, but rather meditations on the senses themselves."

New Series By
Martina + Reem

How excited we are at The Print Atelier to be introducing 2 new series by Martina + Reem, colourful and powerful artworks that are just groundbreaking!

Martina + Reem are a duo of photographers who currently reside in Toronto, Canada. They met while studying at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts. Combining photography with their prior backgrounds in art, their work explores elements of the fantastical in reality. Their signature has been described as conceptual and ethereal. They are highly influenced by art, nature and music.

" This time, the beloved duo artist offer us two series: Dizzy Ghosts and Exsangue ! "

Dizzy Ghosts is a series of 4 photographs taken in the Highlands of Scotland. The slightly spooky atmosphere, with a touch of mystery, puts emphasis on the greatness of the trees. These giants stand tall and proud despite hardships. As Martina + Reem point out: ”Storms make trees take deeper roots”.

Exsangue is part of a never-ending series. The search for a true home when your heart does not know what it desires. The colourful artworks bring an abnormal feeling but yet refreshing. This ethereal series truly shows the signature look of Martina + Reem.
