Maude Arsenault

Maude Arsenault is a Canadian photographer, artist and curator who is particularly invested in the representation of woman in the context of domesticity and intimacy. She is interested in the notion of identity and space and the place of women and youth in our changing society. In 2013, with a third child on its way and a commitment into pursuing her journey in contemporary photography she founded the online gallery The Print Atelier. Maude also recently completed a Minor in Art History (UDM) and is now undertaking a Master (M.A) in Visual Arts at Université du Québec in Montréal.

No. 14 showcases over 150 leading contemporary photographers from all over the world within 256 pages. This publication is said to act as a record of the best photographic work being made today.
