monday April 11th I was asked to photograph the benefit diner at
restaurant Au Robin des Bois in Montreal. This restaurant has a twist
to it: Litterally translated into Robin Hood in english, it's a nonprofit restaurant. Employees
are supported by volunteers and all profits from the sale of meals and
products are donated to charities working in the community to overcome
loneliness, social isolation and poverty.
was their big night, regular people and comedians/actors from
television and theater gathered to help with the benefit diner,
transforming themselves into waiters, some of them for the first time.
The room was packed, the pressure was high, but it all went really
smoothly under the masterful direction of Pierre and Judy, the main
brains behind this event.
second serie is the 'behind the scene' take, from back in the kitchen, where dedicated volunteers helped the chef with the five services diner with meticulous care.
