Simon Emond (they) is a photographer born in Canada. They live in Métabetchouan, a small lakeside town in Quebec. Simon launched their first artistic endeavor in late 2017, when they exhibited gigantic portraits in the town’s streets. In 2019, they followed up with Noir sirène by displacing Norwegian landscapes onto their own homeland. They have gone on to receive several grants, prizes, and honorary mentions, in addition to holding exhibitions in Quebec, as well as a forthcoming exhibit in Portugal.

Recently, they co-published Rebâtir le ciel, an award-winning photo-literary work exploring the night sky along with the queer community living in remote areas. Their print works are usually the result of digital darkroom explorations, where heavy luminosity editing contributes to dislocating the image. The photographs therefore transcend the subject matter and the situation captured by the camera.
