The Montreal-based street photographer Daniel Castonguay portrays the street life like no one else. He is a “silenced character” from afar, taking pictures of people, who usually walk or ride alone, in the rain, in the coldness, often with an umbrella and rarely with someone.

However it’s not dramatic but moody and poetic thanks to the blurriness, the texture and most of all to the soul he gives to each image. Because of all that, his photos are not the usual realistic street photography but something more abstract, which helps him to achieve the mission “Transmitting an emotion” & “bringing the viewer into a story.” As he wrote: “More specifically, to make the viewer travel in a world of reverie, leaving all the space to imagination.”
