I am a Montreal based photographer/artist.
Walking Turcot Yards is a living changing document that really started when in the early 1990’s I began looking for a new project by just riding a bicycle along the Lachine Canal and seeing where that took me.
At that time I began to pay attention to grafitti and its appearance around the city, particularily in abandoned factories.
So that journey led me to the Turcot Yards, a vast incredible “abandoned” space in the south west of Montreal.
What happens now? I am not sure, but it is getting exciting for me. Somehow, a lot of things are beginning to make sense and I look forward to each day of this process with just a little more wonder about everything.
