Guillaume Simoneau is a Canadian photographer who lives and works in Montreal. In his practice he combines working on both personal projects and editorial assignments.
We invite you to become acquainted with the artist’s output by discovering an impressive series titled From fossils to Bowie. It is a visual essay examining the complex relation between mankind and nature.
„The series explores the past through our ancestors and the future through childhood. Like a modern day newsfeed or perhaps an interrupted train of thoughts, this body of work is simultaneously a fragmented overview of our geological era and a message from the past read out loud by a 7 years old,” the artist shares his thoughts.
“When you are in the middle of a story it isn’t a story at all, but only a confusion; a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood; like a house in a whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it. It’s only afterwards that it becomes anything like a story at all. When you are telling it, to yourself or to someone else.” — Margaret Atwood, Alias Grace
