Raphaël Ouellet
Raphaël Ouellet

If Raphael were a fruit, it would be a pineapple. Spiky on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside (though a bit fibrous). He comes from Rimouski and works in Montreal. Raphaël makes films and composes photos that talk about his anxieties, people, their values and tries to understand what motivates each person to stay on earth. This means that he works a lot and that he will probably never stop. Raphael only speaks of himself in the third person when he writes his biography. He has won over 50 awards around the world, including prestigious institutions like PDN, Communication Arts, and American Photography. Raphaël is very uncomfortable with the previous sentence, but he considers that it is useless to win prizes except to include them in his bio... Raphaël loves people deeply.
