According to the press release: “In his book, young photographer Sébastien Hudon meets Guy Borremans, one of Canada’s pioneer photographer and film maker. The reader will discover some of the more important pieces spanning his evolution. “
Guy Borremans has been a photographer for 48 years. As well, he has been a film-maker, cameraman, director of photography and producer for 29 years. At the National Film Board of Canada he has worked with Arthur Lamothe, Gilles Groulx, Clément Perron, Gilles Carle and others. Since the 1960's, in intimate collaboration with the founders of so called Cinema Verite, he has left his mark on cinematographic imagery, using available light and a hand-held camera. In 1956, he was a correspondent with Paris Match. In 1965, during a three-year stay in New York, he worked with the United Nations Film Department, National Educational Television (N.E.T.) Movietone and private producers of commercials.
Upon his return to Quebec in 1968, he worked on such films as Day after day, Le Mépris n'aura qu'un temps and Vingt-quatre heures ou plus. Marilu Mallet's film Le journal inachevé, which he shot, was awarded the Quebec critics' prize. He has also taught at the University of Montreal, at the Moncton University, Concordia University and UQUAM, while pursuing his career as portraitist and director of photography ( Film & video).
Since La femme Image, the first independent film shot in Quebec, in 1959, and his first one-man photography exhibition in 1956, he has taken part in more than 72 film productions, and 33 one-man photography exhibitions, including Voyou, voyant, voyeur (1972), Attentat instantané (1980) and, more recently, Connues, inconnus, malconnues, trop connus, at the Cinémathèque québécoise (1985). which was going to tour Europe through cities like Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Liège and Charleroi.
Guy Borremans now has lived in Sutton since 1996 where he has his studio.
This sounds indeed like an interesting subject for a book and to think he lives in Sutton after all he has done! But what about Sébastien Hudon who has taken the time to devote himself to writing about this interesting figure in the Quebec artistic community. Sébastien Hudon studied art history and has worked as a photographer and on many interesting projects involving contemporary Quebec society and the artistic expression of many unknown masters.
