Jean-François Bouchard has worked in contemporary photography since 2003, traveling the world seeking out people whose interests and lifestyles are out of the ordinary. His visual focus is generally on marginalized and often ostracized groups in our Western society. He sees his role as not only that of an activist but also of a witness who communicates the humanity he sees in his subjects. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries, museums and festivals in Canada, the United States and France. Transpose is Bouchard’s latest body of work which was exhibited at Arsenal Contemporary Art in Montreal and Toronto in 2015. Bouchard lives and works in Montreal and is the president of Sid Lee, a thriving global creative company with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Toronto, and Montreal.
