Auto Portraits: photographs of women in various modes of transport by Laurent Guérin

This May, at the Mira Godard Gallery in Toronto, you can enjoy Auto Portraits, a new series of works by Montreal photographer Laurent Guérin. Showcasing women in different modes of transport – a cab, a tram, various classic cars – it's a closer look at how we get from A to B around the world.

Born in 1969 in Montreal, Guérin began his career as a fashion photographer and soon distinguished himself in various solo and group exhibitions across North America. In 2004, he was invited by the World Press Photo organisation to exhibit a series of images taken in India, 'Les Enfants de la Rue', at the Maison de la Culture Frontenac. In 2008, Cirque du Soleil's head office in Montreal exhibited Guérin's Japan series 'Nippon-Ga'.

In addition to being chosen for one of the prestigious LUX prizes of Grafika magazine, Guérin's photographs have been published internationally in various magazines such as Time Magazine (New York), Express (Paris), Vibe (Toronto) and Urb (Los Angeles). This latest exhibition, which launches on 26 May and runs until 30 June 2018, reveals some of his favourite shots from his ongoing Wanderings series.
