Photography on matte paper
Rue Rivard showcases the typical architecture of certain neighborhoods in Montreal, such as the Plateau-Mont-Royal. The elevation of the front facade has a mirror effect showing two styles that coexist in the streets of Montreal. One more sober and the other more colorful.
A great enthusiast of the city, Francis Duval takes advantage of his walks to photograph the small details that urban scenarios can offer. Himself an urban planner, he shows the beauty of the subtleties of the spaces that surround us, which sometimes escapes our attention. He plays as much with natural light as he plays with lines of perspective to talk about places in his photos. Thus his images have the air of drawings and architectural renderings that highlight the building and the landscape.
