Monte Clark is pleased to present an online viewing room for Greg Girard: Trip Pictures. The online viewing room is available through January 9, 2020
From the earliest stages of his photographic career, Greg Girard has traveled extensively to work on various projects and assignments across the globe. He is known for capturing the expansive transformations of cities, life on military bases, as well as neon-glowing night scenes that present a palette distinctly his own. In between his project-based and assignment work, Girard spends a substantial amount of time in hotels and on airplanes, and over the years he has taken many images that depict his ongoing, often solitary travels. Greg Girard: Trip Pictures collects images of travel spanning almost 40 years, all of which emanate a sense of nostalgia and memory. Perhaps these pictures presented today offer a sense of escapism, or perhaps they carry a stronger sense of longing.
Greg Girard’s works reside in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, The Art Gallery of Ontario, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and numerous other public and private collections. Girard has been featured in National Geographic, TIME, Newsweek, The New Yorker, The National Post, The Star, and numerous other publications. Several books on artist’s work have been published, including Magenta’s Phantom Shanghai, listed as one of the top 10 photography books of all time by The Independent, (UK). Most recently, Girard’s work has been shown at the Richmond Art Gallery (Richmond, BC), the International Centre for Photography (New York), PM Gallery (London, UK), the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), and at the Yixian International Photo Festival (China).
