Renaud Lafrenière says about himself:
“I’m an artist and photographer born and raised in Montréal, Canada. I have exhibited in group shows and been published locally and internationally. Recently I took part in a student exchange of six months in Northern Finland this last winter and was featured in PDN’s Emerging Photographer issue of Summer 2016.
Mainly oriented on photography, my work primarily focuses on the intimate and personal stories, deconstructed, hidden and reformulated in images. I’m currently studying in BFA with a major in photography at Concordia University, Montreal, but am currently living and working in London for the summer.”
About ‘Apprendre à danser’:
‘Apprendre à danser’ (french phrase for: ‘Learning to dance’) is a photo-series constructed on the themes of wandering, discovery and travel. Produced in the Northern part of Scandinavia during the winter of 2016, it pictures an urge from the photographer to make imagery that will help warm emotions travel in this cold, austere place. It’s simply about growing up, being confronted to this adult real life, and trying to make my way through it.
