Laurent Guérin

Laurent Guérin was born in 1969 in Montreal. He began his career as a fashion photographer but, in a very short time, he distinguished himself in various group exhibitions. In 2004, he was invited by the organization World Press Photo to exhibit a series of photographs taken in India, 'Les enfants de la Rue', in the main hall of the Maison de la Culture Frontenac (Montreal). In 2008, Cirque de Soleil's head office in Montreal exhibited Guérin's Japan series, 'Nipponga'.

In addition to being chosen for one of the prestigeous LUX prize of Grafika magazine (Montreal), his photographs have been published internationally in various magazines such as Time Magazine (New York), Express (Paris), Vibe (Toronto) and Urb (Los Angeles).

Laurent Guérin's work is found in private and corporate collections including Colart Collection, Montreal; T.D. Bank, Montreal; Emprise Bank, Kansas and Bennett Jones, Toronto. (Mira Godard)
