The Lights of My CityBook - 2000
Seen through the lens of photographer Yves Marcoux, Montrial is a city of a thousand radiant vistas. It's where the charm of exterior staircases and vibrant-coloured cornices is paired with the lyricism of skyscrapers; where stone lacework and elaborate pediments complement the stark elegance of modern fagades. It's Montrial, the city of history, wearing its past proudly in its streets and squares at every crossroad. It's a city cloaked in green under the midday sun or while beneath its mantle of snow in a grey dawn. It's a city worthy of Montrialers-vibrant, eclectic, cosmopolitan, boasting tranquil neighbourhoods and bustling markets, cafis, and terraces, expressways and narrow, tree-lined streets. It's a city of night, where illuminated buildings cast their reflections on the waters of the St. Lawrence River-a play of chiaroscuro that makes the light dance and sing.
