I've always enjoyed using my camera to capture little snippets of life that usually unravel without anybody noticing them.

Recently, I figured I could very well share those tiny stories in the same manner that journalists tell the stories that make up the news.

In my opinion, these are news. News of everyday life, the one that matters the most, because we all have to go through it, well, everyday. And they are the building blocks that make a life happy, sad or oftentimes, both.

All these moments were captured in Montreal, Canada (except for a couple that I shot in and around Québec city).

You never know what happened to people, why they're in the positions in life that they're in. Kindness is free, most of us can't change the world but we can change someones day, maybe hour (sometimes we're reduced to living from hour to hour). When I give to anyone it is free, no expectations and no preconceived notions, just here this is for you.
