Yann Pocreau was born in Quebec in 1980, and currently lives and works in Montreal. Through photography, he has become interested in the strong presence of place and subject, their intimate cohabitation, and their effect on the narrative framework of the images. Pocreau has participated in several Canadian, American and European exhibitions, including The 5th Internal Sinop Biennal (Turkey), L’image rôde, (le Fresnoy, France) in 2013-2014 Québec Gold (Reims, France) in 2008; Exercices d’empathie presented at Espace Bortier in Brussels; Expansion at Galerie de l’UQAM; Out of Grace at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, within the framework of Montreal’s Mois de la Photo 2011 and recently at the Fonderie Darling. His work has been documented in a variety of magazines (CV, Canadian Art, Spirale, OVNI, Next Level-UK, etc.) and is featured in the collections of the National Bank of Canada, Hydro-Québec, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d’art de Joliette, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec’s Prêt d’œuvres d’art, City of Montreal’s collection and in several private collections.
