These Montreal-based brothers create large-scale photographic prints that are cinematic in scope and compelling in content. The photographs are eerie tableaus that read like broken narratives –lush, complex scenes that explore psychological landscapes, leaving it up to the viewer to unlock the hidden storyline. Every stunning photograph is meticulously staged, adding to the intriguing narrative and sense of mystery.
