The World Press Photo Montreal team is pleased to announce that photographer and entrepreneur Alexandre Champagne will serve as spokesperson for its 2018 edition, which will be presented at Bonsecours Market from August 29 to September 30. In this context, Champagne will also exhibit his photographs of the aftermath of the tragedy at Quebec City’s Great Mosque.

He runs his photo studio, where he carries out commercial but also philanthropic contracts, always mindful to give back to the community. He teaches photography and is currently putting the finishing touches on his first book about the topic, in the hopes of allowing a greater number of people to get acquainted with the photographic potential of smartphones. The book, entitled L’art de réussir toutes ses photos avec son téléphone cellulaire (“The art of successfully taking all your photos with your smartphone”), will be published in the fall of 2018 with Éditions Cardinal.
