Shifting between proximity and distance, Azimuth 243 assembles two photographic studies on Paris and Montreal, through a series of resonances to the book Montréal-Paris. Started in the summer of 2011 by photographers Pascal Amoyel & Thomas Bouquin, Azimuth 243 consists of six, twenty-four page limited edition booklets, from UN to SIX. The booklets will be followed by three exhibitions, A#, B# and C#, whose curating represents the continuation of their editorial work. A# Azimuth 243 was exhibited in the Off Festival, during the International Photography Festival in Arles, July 2-8, 2013. The fifth book in the edition, CINQ was released in conjunction with the exhibition. Today we share images from their project.
