Presentation by Julien Coquentin on the publisher's website:

"For two years I photographed Montreal.

I wanted to write a poetic of the city and remoteness, an American ride in short. I worked at night in the emergency room of a big hospital and lived in the cosmopolitan district of Mile-End.

This America was mixed with my childhood dreams and today the most clear feelings that remain in my memory, are those that I felt on winter mornings. I would leave the hospital, imbued with the odor and mood of others, in the freezing cold. There was no more perfume. I remember empty and white boulevards, snow falling softly, silently.

It was Sunday, and above all, I loved photographing those moments. "

Julien Coquentin is a French photographer, member of Studio Hans Lucas. His bibliography is closely connected to the French publisher éditions lamaindonne, as he has published two books of his urban travels: "Tôt un dimanche matin, journal de Montréal" (2013) and "Huit jours à New York" (2014), then the much more personal and intimate "Saisons Noires" (2018) in the French southern countryside of his childhood and "Tropiques" (2020), a trace of two years of family life on the Réunion island in the Indian Ocean, off Madagascar. © Portrait taken from the artist profile on the  Hans Lucas website.

More than the children of a country, we were the children of a landscape. A handful of friends in the heart of a huge territory.
