About The Work
Noir et Blanc offers some sort of finish that makes subjects unreal or reminiscent of the past, it brings a dramatic atmosphere to concepts that are not usually, and provides a misleading effect. In this series of digital images also taken from 2012 to 2016, the isolation of particular scenes showcases the beauty of black and white and the possibility given by modifications made from a computer.The subject is the ultimate point of interest in a black and white photograph.
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.
