Guillaume Simoneau - Love and War
"Love and War" is an intimate investigation that reveals the complexity of a young U.S. Army sergeant veteran's love life; before, during, and after her deployment in Iraq. Following his subject Caroline Annandale between the ages of 16 and 25, photographer Guillaume Simoneau documents her transformation through the experience of war and military service as it plays out against her personal world.
Guillaume Simoneau is a Canadian photographer based in Montreal. "Love and War" recently headlined the Daegu Photography Biennale in Korea and is heading to the Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago in July 2013 for a three person exhibition entitled "Backstory: Ron Jude, Guillaume Simoneau and LaToya Ruby Frazier." Simoneau is currently nominated for this year's PDN30.
The exhibition "Love and War" continues at the Contact Gallery, 80 Spadina, Suite 310, until March 3, 2013.
