Gilles Tarabiscuité

Gilles Tarabiscuité takes an approach to photography that is characterised by the tension between realism and conceptualised narrative. He distances himself from the idea of the “decisive moment” by introducing new minor elements or modifications.

Based in Montréal, he is an art historian and is influenced by the documentary approach of the Düsseldorf School of Photography as well as the aesthetics and themes of the American colourists.
