“I take pictures in order to try to make sense of the world around me. I sequence photos taken within a short or arbitrarily designated period of time in an attempt to be more conscious of how I got to where I am in life, be it on a physical or an emotional level.”
Justin L. Labelle's photographic work autobiographically explores the interplay of symbols and signs.
His completed series are mosaics of fragmented moments. Though personal and introspective in nature, his sequenced images also invite contemplation in regards to Truth, memory and authenticity in regards to the curated documentation of 21st century life.

His street photography documents over 30 countries and his work has been exhibited in Sweden, Italy, Canada and most recently in Australia.

He currently resides in Melbourne, Australia.
