For the last photograph in this collection I’m featuring my friend once more, Canadian nomadic circus artist Jonathan Fortin.
It was taken a little more than a year and a half after the first featured photo, 7th in this collection.
Exactly one week after I photographed Sigrid, the 3rd in this collection.
We made it on the roof of Jonathan’s building in the Le Plateau-Mont-Royal neighbourhood of Montreal.
As opposed to #7, this one took place on a very hot summer day.
We used his flatmate’s Balinese mask which he bought in Bali, Indonesia.
I never used photos from this session in the main project.
July 31, 2016. Montreal, Canada.
Ben Hopper is a portraitist and conceptual photographer whose projects centre on the human figure. Exploring shame, conflict and human transfiguration, his work gets to the heart of who we are beneath our masks – and why we wear them.
