Photographs of journalist-turned-artist on display at the Côte Saint-Luc Library art gallery

The Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is presenting Illuminations, an exhibit of iridescent photographs of Montreal-based photographer André Boucher in the Library’s Art Gallery from September 30 to November 23, 2014.

Boucher will be at the Art Gallery on Tuesday, September 30 at 7 pm to discuss his work during a free Meet the Artist event. Refreshments will be served.

The exhibit features photographic works from six different series. The common theme, aside from mirroring effects, is that none of the photos has been digitally altered or retouched.  

Boucher prints his photographs on a variety of surfaces such as glass, stainless steel and paper, which he says allows him the flexibility of altering visual perceptions and keep the viewer guessing.

Boucher was born in Chicoutimi in 1950. He developed his talents as a photographer early in life. A graduate in communication studies, Boucher worked as a reporter for the newspaper Le Soleil and later founded Groupe Image, a project he directed for several years. He became a freelance photographer and then made a move towards contemporary art. He currently lives and works in Montreal. Boucher’s work has been shown throughout Quebec, and can be found in numerous private and museum collections.

His current artworks can be viewed at
