About The Work
Couleur is a digital series that was produced between 2012 and 2016 in order to depict scenes, people and objects that are not usually meant to be observed. Color photography allows Hebert to create important visual changes working on the chromatic of his images while in post-production. The goal is to control the tones, blend the colors so that they become element of picturality as a painting would, done by brush. The importance of the combination of colors and the captation of a scenery while shooting remains essential.
WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS THE PHOTOGRAPH PRINTED ON?
All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
WHAT IS THE PRINTING PROCESS USED?
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
IS THE IMAGE SIZE THE SAME AS THE PAPER SIZE?
NO! Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum of 0.5 inch white border. This is an artistic decision that belongs to the artist. Margins don’t normally exceed 2-4 inches on each side depending on the final paper size.
Guillaume Hébert is a young photographer in his twenties who has recently completed his studies in photography at CEGEP du Vieux-Montreal. 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 seems to be the key to his approach. Guillaume believes his work is more related to a form of expressionism than to a conceptual approach since it captures time, change and the state of things.
It is when he manages to capture the illusion of reality that he considers he has managed to achieve a photograph that is unique, one that can not happen once again. Guillaume calls this… The Concordance of time.
