Montreal photographer Terry Hughes‘ first solo photography exhibition SONDER will be showcased at the Galerie du Viaduc. From August 22 to August 27, visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the essence of the human experience through his lens.
According to Hughes:
“Everyone has a story and I think we’re at a point in time that really requires us to consider the circumstances that shape us… that shape others and in turn, our perceptions of each other. “Sonder” is a term that derives from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, referring to the profound realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as our own. It is the understanding that every individual we encounter has dreams, fears, joys, and challenges that shape their existence in ways we may never fully comprehend”.
The photographic collection includes color and black and white images which aim to capture this sentiment and to grant glimpses into the rich narratives that constitute the human tapestry. The event will provide attendees with the opportunity to meet the Photographer and engage with the stories and emotions encapsulated within each photograph.
Raised amidst the culturally rich kaleidoscope of Montreal, Terry’s deep appreciation for diverse stories is the foundation of his photographic journey. Which led him to collaborate with Non-Governmental Organizations across Africa, South Asia, Central, and South America. These experiences allowed him to witness firsthand the strength, resilience, and grace of individuals facing adversity, and inspired him to render homage through his lens.
Terry’s photographs aim to evoke empathy, provoke thought and spark dialogue, about the undeniably collective experience as beings on Earth. As a photographer, Hughes remains devoted to capturing the mystery and diversity of the individual. Through his lens, he invites us to embark on an introspective journey, where colors and monochromes converge.
SONDER at Galerie du Viaduc is a not-to-be-missed exhibition inviting viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of humanity and the vast range of emotions defining our shared lives.
