I've been to Montreal a couple times. Would like to take my motorcycle there in the spring and do some shooting. I agree -for a very artistic community, very little going on in the way of photography it seems. For the exception of Amanda Tetrault and her project "Phil and Me", I haven't seen anything film related come out of that city in a long time. However, I'm also not really combing through the Montreal photography scene very much. And the landscape and architecture is very unique and something you would never see out west.

I always enjoy reading your posts for your vast knowledge by the way.
Has It Come To Be?
I am wondering if anything came of the collective, possible involvement interests me.
I believe Canadians working in the film and darkroom discipline need to identify with each other. Darkroom prints from film negatives are one of a kind pieces of art, the the artists need to be recognized for the skill and dedication the craft requires.
Doing it in the dark...
I am in Toronto and shoot film. Although I do not consider myself a documentary photographer at the moment.

When you get the collective going, or perhaps to help get it going, you might consider contacting the Photographic Historical Society of Canada. They're no a film collective, but do great work in educating folks about historic processes and the art and history of photography...and let's face it, the history of photography is film (oh yah, and plates...). They're the "sister organization to the one I am a member of, PHSNE.
As this has popped up again, I'm wondering if anything came of this? In Vancouver here (Burnaby) and definitely interested.
