Bertrand Carrière’s contribution as erudite commentator and photographer cannot be understated. Author of 15 photo books, his impressions and documentation of our social fabric as it gets washed over by waves of change, give us reason to pause and consider who we are at heart.
This latest magnum opus, Solstice, is an intimate retrospective of the man behind the camera’s eye. Beautifully designed and printed, its thought-provoking bilingual text guides the reader through a life’s journey of being a photographer, author and teacher.
From his family albums to his traveller’s notebooks, from Gaspé to Ireland through Dieppe and Montreal, his photographs, be they personal or worldly, convey dignity and respect in a broad scope of 20th-century history. The writing is uncomplicated, lovingly imbued with humour and sensitivity as we get to relive his many journeys.
