François Bérubé’s and Sophie Jean’s photo project Gaspésiennes (Gaspesian Women) will be presented during the Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine Femmessor conference on women and entrepreneurship, which is taking place on Thursday, October 27, 2011, at Gîte du Mont-Albert.
Remember that this work is the result of these two photographers’ artist residency that was part of Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie, during which they met with and photographed 30 Gaspesian women who are actively involved in their communities. This mosaic of portraits attempts to convey the humanity of these women as well as their contribution to the development of the Gaspé area.
