Thomas Bouqin

Thomas Bouqin is a French born photographer currently living and working in Montréal, Québec. He is attending Concordia University, working towards a Bachelor of the Arts in Photography. Thomas’ work primarily examines the relationship between man and the landscape and how elements such as memory, space and light can influence and modify our perceptions of these places. Visually, he is working within the gap between photographic subjectivity and documentary traditions. Today we share his most recent series, The Lou Mistrau.

The Lou Mistrau

The Lou Mistrau project reflect the sentiment felt and lived by my new immigrant status while revisiting places that are personal in south of France. They show the inability to participate fully in the activities taking place before one’s eyes, being at the same time both a spectator and a temporary resident.
