About The Work
Mt Washington/New Hampshire, 35 mm the artist express that even if he has known the medium of photography through film and analog camera first, he quickly got used to the digital world. In this series made in Mount Washington in September 2016, he used an old school film camera, because it is often linked to the idea of memories. He wanted to bring an authentic feel to this particular series and also illustrate what this new place he was exploring made him feel. Visiting this region, that is isolated and kept away from the rest of the world highlighted the sentiment of being lost and is represented here by images that have no post-production work.
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.
