Lou Mistrau

Thomas Bouqin is a French born photographer currently living and working in Montréal, Québec. Thomas' work primarily examines the relationship between man and the landscape and how elements such as memory, space and light can influence and modify our perceptions of these places. Visually, he is working within the gap between photographic subjectivity and documentary traditions..
The Lou Mistrau project reflect the sentiment felt and lived by his new immigrant status while revisiting places that are personal in south of France. They show the inability to participate fully in the activities taking place before one's eyes, being at the same time both a spectator and a temporary resident. Lou Mistrau : is a strong, cold and usually dry regional wind in France, coming from the north or northwest, blowing across the Mediterranean coast from Languedoc to Provence, shaping the landscape, vegetation and character of its inhabitant.
