"Secret Societies" photographs explore a new social phenomenon. The way technology and the social fabric are evolving allows the development of often-misunderstood group - or "secret societies"- whose members are drawn together to share their very special interests. Jean-François exhibited the first installment of the project in 2008 and he is now working on a series of color photographs on the same theme.
« I started working in color just a few years ago. To get more familiar with what felt to me like a new medium, I started carrying my camera around on business trips and seeking marginal events or gatherings of people who share what you could call "uncommon" interests. I felt like a kid switching from a lead pencil to vibrant Crayolas... with slightly edgier subject matters, granted. » - Jean-François Bouchard
