Mikael Theimer.


Born in Paris, Mikaël Theimer moved to Montreal in 2008. Following four years in the advertising industry, he reinvented himself as a photographer, beginning a search for meaning, humanity and freedom.

Inspired by the Humans of New York blog. Meeting Montreal residents on the street, he cofounded the Portraits of Montreal blog, which eventually turned into a book, published in May 2017.

As part of the 375th Anniversary of Montreal, he contributed to the Aime Comme Montréal book and exhibit. Partnering up with many NGOs, he has documented social projects in his own city, but sometimes as far as in Haïti, Ghana, Togo and Cuba.

Because he spends most of his time wandering the streets of the places he visits, he’s built a very large catalog of street photography and street portraits.
