The Best Of Monochromia – Mario Gervais – St. Paul West

Black And White Photography, Mario, Meho, Photography

Many of you might remember Meho Jarvis better known by his real name Mario Gervais. Mario was instrumental in getting Monochromia up and running and is a true friend to me. Whatever name he wants to use it fine by me because I will always consider him an extremely talented photographer as well as great web page designer – Joe

Taken in Montréal, Québec, in April 2014.

I like the heavy urban presence here. Unmovable concrete, bricks and windows. Then we see in the middle of this stopped urban scenery two individuals following the one way.

I used to live in a suburb financially comfortable throughout my whole childhood. As soon as I moved out from under my parents roof, I headed to something more “working class”. I’ve learned so much from these places. I’ve learned a lot about needs, how to get out of the bottom with nothing at all, and how to have self esteem while wearing worn out jeans for a job interview. 😉
