For its 13th edition, Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal has invited renowned British curator Paul Wombell to develop an exhibition program around his theme, Drone: The Automated Image. From September 5 to October 5, 2013, visitors will have a chance to explore 25 exhibitions in 14 sites across Montreal.

Visitors will discover local, national, and international artists, a number of whom produced works specifically for this event or are presenting their works in Canada for the first time. The artists explore how humans share the stage with technology, emphasizing the functions and intelligence of the camera and its transformation into an object that can inspire dreams. More than simply expanding vision into places where the human cannot travel, due to distance or danger, the camera is a sophisticated instrument with its own laws and its own agency. By excavating the history of camera technology and also looking into its future, the artists are raising an important question: do cameras have a life of their own?

Inspired by the theme of the event, the public programs invite visitors to immerse themselves more deeply in the artworks and the theme, explore facets of current artistic practice, experience the transformations of the photographic image, and discover many striking works. The interactive and user-friendly activities are meant to create a memorable cultural experience that leads to a better understanding and appreciation of contemporary photography.
