Philippe – Crisis

Philippe – Crisis

When I think about crisis, I think about Philippe, my son. Philippe is an energetic 9-year-old boy, always singing, very curious, crazy about sports and candy, and always wanting more out of life. He is happy, most of the time. He is like any other 9-year-old boy, except that he has Cystic Fibrosis, a degenerative disease that affects the lungs and pancreas.

Jim Royal is a Montreal photographer and has been shooting in the city for 15 years. Jim is drawn to architecture and landscapes. He says that the solitary nature of this kind of photography—away from other people and away from the computer screen—has a meditative quality that allows him to relax and reflect. Montreal is one of his favourite subjects, although he has shot in places across North America, Europe, and South Asia.
