The Gazette

For several years, Monique Dykstra had a weekly column in the Montreal Gazette, where she roamed the streets of Montreal, looking for people with great tales to tell.

Subjects ranged from lunch counter raconteurs to gravestone salesmen, from cloistered nuns to belly dancers.

The photos were done on black-and-white film using a medium-format camera, giving the photographs an old fashioned vintage feel.
