As much as I love Montreal, there’s one thing that I really hate about my city (and that’s actually the case for most Montrealers): the ongoing, never ending construction. The orange cone is Montreal’s most iconic object. “Rue Barré” could the city’s motto. Drivers and passers-by alike know better then to live right on time for a meeting: wherever you go, there’s always a road-block or a detour that you didn’t plan for.
As a photographer, I’m turning this annoying reality into a little bit of a game, capturing the peregrinations of people trying to deal with the construction around them. Here’s a little peek into the daily reality of Montrealers. Watch your step.

The two thinkers
Watch your head
Can I give you a hand?
And you thought construction was a man’s job
Men can’t resist a little peep
Biggest Lego block ever
This is the look on every Montrealer’s face when they see a construction sign
The king of the building
Secret bike lane
They really don’t want you to park here
“Where the hell did the sidewalk go??”
Let’s take a break boys.
Don’t lose faith, it will get fixed eventually
The toilet in the middle of the road
Future peep show fan?
Playground zero, take 2
Stripes and check
So do I go left or do I go right?
This is… welcoming?
I tip my hat to Montrealers for keeping cool in all the rubble!
