Highway 40 Quebec-Montreal

Here are 15 photos from a series of 32 “chronicling” a trip from Quebec City to Montreal on Highway 40 at sunset. I took advantage of the fact that I wasn’t the driver to photograph the landscape along the highway, using relatively slow exposure times to obtain deliberate abstractions. The effect varies according to the nature, variety and distance of the vegetation that borders it, but also by the imperfections of the roadway.

This is the project which, to date, best expresses my essentially graphic approach (apart from socio-documentary photography). As I’m strongly attracted to everything that resembles drawing and painting, this series reminds me of certain brushstrokes by the painter Georges Mathieu (revealed to us at the 1967 World’s Fair in Montreal).
