Biography

I was born in Québec City in 1955. My father Raoul Hunter was a sculptor, art teacher, and editorial cartoonist. After my studies in literature and text and image semiology, I pursued a professional career in publishing. I also founded my own publishing house in 2010 to first publish my book on my father.

My interest in photography begins in adolescence with the occasional borrowing of a reflex camera. In 1978 I buy an Olympus OM-1 and mostly use reversal film (slides) until 2002, when I purchase my first digital camera.

My taste for landscape photography is confirmed during my studies in Paris from 1981 to 1984. I succumb to the charms of Europe, but only use my camera occasionally.

A renewed interest in landscape appears when I am production manager at the Canadian Centre for Architecture from 1990 to 2003. I have the chance to meet Lee Friedlander, Geoffrey James, and Robert Burley while supervising the printing of their exhibition catalogue on the parks of Olmsted.

The desire to devote myself entirely to landscape photography dates back to 2002. Pleased with one of my photos of Kouchibouguac Park (NB), I decide to deepen this artistic approach which is now my full-time occupation.
