"Untold Stories" by Jean Malek
New from award-winning Montreal photographer, story-teller and director Jean Malek comes this teaser release, the first instalment in a new and broad-reaching photographic series he has titled “Untold Stories.”
The series explores the complex themes of family, diverse group dynamics and the untold secrets that lie within closed circles.
While drawn together by the intensity and ambiguity of each image, the series is constructed to explore many unique stories and in this way is not intended to be connected stylistically.
The ambitious project has been in production since the beginning of 2013 and when completed is expected to contain between 8 and 10 images to be presented at exhibition.
