Renaud Lafrenière is a young photographer from Montréal, Canada. He is currently completing his BFA in Photography at Concordia University, where he perfects his eye, thoughts and photos and is involved in the community by co-organizing exhibitions and events. His work revolves around the narrative and often takes the form of series. He plays with metaphors, symbols and visual poetry to convey meaning in his work.
Stanstead is a project taking place in a town South East of Québec, a town that is split at its core by the Canada-USA border. During the Wanderlust residency in Stanstead, directed by artist Jessica Auer, Renaud’s focus was put on ideas of surveillance and searching for what’s hidden. Whilst walking around, Renaud was closely looking at all things reminding the obvious but ghostly presence of the international border and it’s structure.
