JOSEPH GUAY

Joseph Guay was born in Lewiston, Maine in 1971, of French-Canadian descent. This self-taught photographer’s new series of work titled “Memory Portraits” consists of photographic images and video installations of selected peoples’ lives. The photographs are minimalist portraits, but the video installations embedded in the photographs are dynamic collections of memories and reality in which the subjects chose to reveal themselves to the viewer. When the footage is played back, the viewer sees the subject’s actual memories in chronological clips the same way the human mind records and recalls these pieces of reality. His work is included in the Sir Elton John Photography Collection and in the private collection of Evgeny Lebedev.
