Benoît Beaudry

Benoît Beaudry – I think I could easily (but still, humbly) write a voluminous thesis on «connections»! But I’ll try to keep it simple… :) Malin likes Pink Floyd. Ben likes Pink Floyd also. Denis «Piggy» D’Amour (the deceased and highly underrated guitarist from the Canadian band Voïvod) liked Pink Floyd too (to the point that he once met and covered them; on a few records). Ben never met any members of Pink Floyd (up close), but Ben met Denis «Piggy» D’Amour a few times. What’s more? Dan «Chewy» Mongrain replaced Denis «Piggy» D’Amour in Voïvod; after his death. Dan «Chewy» Mongrain now teach guitar in Joliette (the town I was born and lived in all my youth). Ben never met Dan «Chewy» Mongrain, but Ben once had a drummer named Yan «Berlu» Berlati who once met Michel «Away» Langevin (the drummer from Voïvod) so, Ben is connected to Pink Floyd in many different and not so distant ways… and well, by means of computer correspondence with Ben, so is Malin. «We are connected… we are connected…» These words come from the intro of an album by Voïvod (released in 1987). And on the 27 January of 2015, just a few days ago, they released a brand new musical piece titled «We are connected»! So, in the context of the words above, the photo I share with you seems ridiculously staged, but it’s not at all; I just looked at the date on my computer; realised that Malin’s deadline was coming, turned my rolling chair to get my camera… and there it was; my modest «connection».

Graham A Stephen – For me this particular shot symbolises Connection on two different levels: first physical connection with the world through touch; and second, the family connection in the photographer/subject relationship. Visit Graham’s blog here.

  2. An excellent selection, Malin, a high standard, very good to see. Apologies once more for not contributing, my imagination is nor what it was at the moment. My favourite here is certainly Ashley’s – the green nail varnish and those eyes really lift it, its a very striking image; and Kari’s is very unusual, it says a lot. Adrian
