In Quebec, hundreds of thousands of people face literacy challenges. Presented for the first time, the Reading Between the Lines exhibition features 11 winners of Go Getters’ Bursaries awarded by the Literacy Foundation and Desjardins Foundation. Visitors will discover the stories and resilience of these 11 individuals.

Paradoxically, making fun of other people’s writing is often a sign of ignorance. The exhibition seeks to put this reality into perspective,” explains Yann Fortier, General Manager and Curator of the World Press Photo Montreal exhibition. After Claire 107 Years Old, presented as part of last year’s event, Justine Latour unveils the black-and-white portraits in this large-format series.

Reading Between the Lines is one of six accompanying exhibitions presented along the World Press Photo Montreal 2023 and is presented with the Literacy Foundation.
