A text and photo documentation of the unique and vital feature of local Montréal culture, Le Dépanneur.


This project explores and informs viewers of the unique local feature within Montréal that is likely unknown to outsiders, and is often overlooked by residents of the city; the Dépanneur. As an outsider moving to and now living on the island, I would like to share my curiosity about the history of Dépanneurs, their context within current Montréal culture, and stories from the owners and workers of Dépanneurs throughout the city.

This project is presented as a documentation of personal and location-based interviews, using a medium format camera and a voice recorder to document information about each Dépanneur and the stories of their owners or workers.
