Michel Huneault

Before devoting himself full time to photography in 2008, Huneault worked for over ten years in the international development field, a profession that took him to over twenty countries, including one full year spent in Afghanistan. Michel holds a MA in Latin American Studies from UC Berkeley, researching on the role of collective memory in large scale traumatic recovery. At Berkeley and then in NYC, he was a student and assistant of Magnum photographer Gilles Peress. His practice - often mixing photography with immersive elements - focuses on development and humanitarian issues, on personal and collective traumas, and on complex geographies. Michel received the 2015 Lange-Taylor Prize for his work on the Lac-Mégantic catastrophe — published as a monograph by Schilt — and the 2016 Travers Fellowship to continue his research on migration. Intersection, a new project documenting the crossing of asylum seekers coming to Canada from the USA, is being adapted as a virtual reality experience to be released by the National Film Board of Canada in 2018.

Michel Huneault was curated by AKA.
