Portraits by Terence Byrnes
Terence Byrnes is a writer and the Chair of the English Department at Concordia University, in Montreal, but he also has a life-long involvement with photography. His project of documenting turn-of-the-century Montreal writers started as editorial photographs to accompany interviews in Matrix magazine. "Literary portraiture tends to show writers as august presences in front of a studio backdrop or slightly rumpled figures against a background of bookcases or bricks," he says. "I've tried to make the subjects more purely photographic, the images more mindful of light itself."
