Regions of Emotion: The Documentary Photography of Jules Villemaire.
The opening of the exhibition will take place exceptionally on Saturday, September 22, at 6:30 p.m., outside SAW Gallery, located at 67 Nicholas Street, in Ottawa.
From September 22 to October 7, 2012, during X Ottawa Photography Festival and Nuit Blanche Ottawa, Le Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle, with the support of SAW Gallery and the Ottawa Arts Court, presents Regions of Emotion: The Documentary Photography of Jules Villemaire.
Curated by Stefan St-Laurent, the exhibition is a first survey of the photographic work of the Ottawa artist. Jules Villemaire, renowned for contributing greatly to the documentation and preservation of Franco-Ontarian theatre, has also, for more than 40 years, developed an intimate and singular vision of rural and urban French Ontario. From Hearst to Timmins, he has captured sublime moments of everyday life of the thousands of people he has encountered in his social practice.
