Josée Pedneault’s artistic work rests on the collection of images, the everyday and the sensitive links that are created between these images. Her photographic universe articulates around her diaristic, contemplative and poetic imagination, where she meets a variety of subjects. The theme of travel, wandering or the nomadic life is a constant invoked in a metaphoric manner by the concepts that govern her work. In her projects, Josée Pedneault aims to show, for example, that images make it possible to maintain a tangible memory (From Warsaw with Love, Les Correspondances), that love transcends time (Pour que tu ne m’oublies pas) or that the only value of anything is sentimental (Con todi mi afecto).
Josée Pedneault lives and works in Montréal where in 2005 she completed a Masters in photography at Concordia University. Pedneault has also participated in residency programmes in Varsovie, Paris, Hong Kong, Scandinavia and Mexico.
