The photojournalist WILL STACEY currently exhibits in Montreal until September 27- 2015 at the Bonsecours Market: DEADLINE, a photo montage project that examines the transformations undergone in recent years inside newspapers in North America.
For his project, Stacey has used the Philadelphia Inquirer, a newspaper he knows well and that looks like all other large urban newspapers in the United States as well as in Canada. We can also make a close comparaison to the Journal de Montreal and La Presse of Montreal.
In the case of the Philadelphia Inquirer if it once occupied a majestic building in the city downtown, it is now housed in a former department store…
According to Will Stacey, the future of newspapers is far from shining and the Internet can never replace the role of newspapers to protect democracy and to well inform citizen. DEADLINE is presented at the Bonsecours Market and included in the other exhibition World Press Photo 2015 Montreal. Will Stacey also presented a conférence at Centre Phi in Old Montreal where he explained to the public his perception of the importance of newspapers as well as his project. A very interesting presentation!
