The Association Étudiante de Polytechnique and PolyPhoto, in collaboration with PolyCopie, is presenting a photo exhibition that renders homage to the 14 women whose lives were cut short on December 6, 1989. Exactly 30 years later, 14 female members of the Polytechnique Community, alongside employees and students, have sat for pictures to highlight the shadow cast from the loss of these women. The exhibition was created to enable the public to better get to know the 14 women who were killed.
Photos were taken with a Mamiya RB67 analog camera, equipped with a 90 mm lens, on Ilford Delta 100 film, because that would have been the equipment PolyPhoto would have used 30 years ago for photos of the 14 women. The exhibition will be displayed in the tunnel that joins the Main Building and the Lassonde building, from November 28 to December 10, 2021.
