Born in Mont-Joli, Quebec, Guy Lavigueur grew up in the milieu of commercial and recreational aviation. He became interested in photography at a young age. He went on many flying excursions with his father, a pilot, to master the art and technique of aerial photography. Since 1999 he continues his research on the transformed landscape and more specifically on all the aspects of erosion.
If my images do not impress with their subject they invariably attract attention and curiosity. Often the work takes the viewer away shamelessly. When properly absorbed, he traverses the work, circulating his sight around it, looking from afar then close again. When I "hold" him well, hypnotized, that 's when I can claim to his capitulation. His pure analytic capacities are on hold. He is then ready to be seduced. My titles are part of my artistic approach. They evoke neither the places nor the subject. They add to the metaphor. In turn direct or blur the reading levels. If a documentary photography can travel around the world, I like to think that my works will transport the audience into "their" world.
