Pont de Brooklyn

Open Air Museum

Éric Villeneuve

Éric Villeneuve’s work focuses on the representation of memory; how memory records feeling, the distorted yet recognizable physical aspect, blurred and rarely in the same proportions as in real life. He superimposes multiple images, striving to preserve the mood, feeling and impression he experienced at the moment of shooting.

Even as a young boy, the Brooklyn Bridge fascinated Villeneuve. While in New York to shoot a new series of photographs, he drifted under the bridge on a boat and was immediately struck by the sight of the bridge from this other angle, making it, in his opinion, even more imposing!

THE ARTIST

After completing a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Communications at Université Laval à Québec, Éric Villeneuve worked as a graphic designer both in advertising agencies and as a freelancer. Photography, his preferred media, has always been part of his world.
