‘ Pierre Manning is blessed with rare aesthetic flair. Time and again over the last fifteen years, he has shown his consummate skill in mixing the right ingredients for a successful shot. He has a singular touch when it comes to creating atmospheres and bringing out beauty with simplicity. Manning succeeds in capturing raw emotion without pretension. His refined imagery, invariably stamped with his distinctive style, provides a penetrating look at his subject matter. Manning’s talents extend across the board from fashion to portraiture, advertising, corporate, thematic and artistic photography. Credited with an impressive array of campaigns for key accounts with Montreal agencies, he displays a remarkable range of artistic approaches in visually branding such organizations as Desjardins, Loto-Québec, Visa, Elle Québec, Tristan, Hydro-Québec, Air Canada, Volkswagen, Tourisme Québec, the Canadian National Railway, the National bank, Canada Post, Bell, Astral Media, Molson, the Royal Canadian Mint, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Chu Sainte Justine. ‘

‘ In shot after shot, Minakawa presents vehicles that look as if they came straight off some deranged kabuki set. Nothing looks as if it was ever meant for anything so mundane as road transportation. Gaudy gold fins are welded to the boot of two-wheeler carts. Trucks are festooned with blinding neon signs, their every surface plastered with kanji script and strobe lights. Meanwhile, the fleet of motorbikes and scooters are painted in a resplendent rainbow of glossy blues, reds and blacks; some are even adorned with stylized eyes on the fender. The overall effect is one of manga Transformers, a split second before they unfold, unclip and spring into life. ‘ Link here.
