A series shot by Félix Perreault

Four years ago, We left for 6 months accross western north America on a quest to freedom, or maybe some answers. We brought our video gear having in mind to shoot epic landscapes and sceneries, and that’s what we did.

It was a good plan.

It’s beautiful, there’s no doubt. But it doesn’t speak, not as much as these pictures.
Disposable cameras were for me, back then, something that was fun but had no potential.
So I spontaneously shot with them our lifestyle and activities and left them in my bag.

And now, when I look at them, I can feel the way I felt back then.
They are raw and naive.
