    Michel Campeau is a known fixture of the Montréal photography scene, but he's been propulsed to semi-stardom lately with the publication of Darkroom, his series on, well, darkrooms! (http://www.agencered.ca/campeau/Darkroom/index.htm). Book publication championed by Martin Parr, cover page of Aperture, the works.

    Now he's exhibiting a new series at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts of "portraits" of film cameras and other analog gear:

    I have seen only a few image so far, but the series seems gorgeous (and the techno-nerd in me is titillated as well).

    Campeau is also exhibiting at Simon Blais Gallery a selection of his recent work, which seems to include images from the Darkroom series:
