ANNUAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS 2023 WINNERS ANNOUNCED!
Honorable Mention / Fine ArtBACK TO GALLERY
Good friends sharing the daily art of living.
My name is Daniel Castonguay, I’m a street photographer based in Montreal, Canada. I started photography in 1979.
Living in a great city, I was naturally driven to street photography and depicting the quotidian life in its simplest form. When I started in this field of photography, I worked accordingly to the established standards of the style. At a certain point, I got bored of not being able to illustrate the mood of the “moment”. In order to give a more authentic touch to my work, audacious and challenging the rules, I began to process my imagery to make it a little more mysterious. This had the effect of combining simple moments of life with my state of mind, ending up in a unique "creative street photography" style, hence the name of my series "Quotidian Life".
