A new identity

Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal becomes
MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image

For our 15th edition, the time had come to more precisely define our status as a biennale. MOMENTA is the plural form of the Latin word momentum. It speaks to the character of our biennale as an event in time, alluding to Henri Cartier-Bresson’s concept of “the decisive moment.” MOMENTA also references to the different temporalities of the image as a moment, an encounter. Our name has changed, but our mission remains the same.

Come and discover with us What Does the Image Stand For? in September!
