Contact Photography: over here over there

The Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival has an photo installation by Alain Paiement in one of the most perfect place for art installations - Brookfield Place. The glass blocks on the main floor have been covered over by large photos which give the perspective of someone looking down into the bottom floor and the photos of are real life as found by the photographer. There were a lot of stuffed animals in one room.
From Contact's website "These scenes show people and places in Paiement’s own neighbourhood: apartment interiors, storage spaces, a garage, a rock group studio, his own studio, and other contiguous environments. All are carefully represented and wondrously skewed. Despite the artificiality of his constructions, the chaos within these photographs is never staged. It is simply and objectively documented just as it is “found.”"
