Gabor Szilasi falls under the spell of Sainte-Catherine


A Montrealer since 1959, Gabor Szilasi has photographed the city and its people from every angle, and documented the many changes seen over the years. Considered one of Québec’s best photographers, his talent has earned him the country’s most prestigious awards among which Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas. The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership presented an outdoor exhibition made up of a series of 27 of his photographs showing Sainte-Catherine Street in the 1970s. That not only enabled his fans to take advantage of a look back in time at one of the city’s iconic thoroughfares, but most of all to see it through the perspective of Gabor Szilasi, one of Montréal’s greatest admirers.
