#7 • Mois de la Photo à Montréal

September 17, 2013
The Belgo Report

This episode of The Belgo Report focuses on the photography biennale Mois de la Photo à Montréal. Host Bettina Forget talks to the biennale’s curator Paul Wombell about the theme “Drone – The Automated Image” and the idea of photography without a photographer. In the second half of the program Bettina talks to artists Véronique Ducharme and Cheryl Sourkes; both are showing their work at Galerie B-312 as part of the Mois de la Photo programming. Find out about hunter’s cameras capturing deer at night and webcams capturing people in the nude in this episode’s investigation of automated photography.

The music this month is by Bersarin Quartett, which is not, as the name would suggest, a quartet, but just one talented guy in Berlin called Thomas Bücker.
