Over the past three years, I have travelled to Florida annually to photograph the life of Quebec seasonal immigrants that are known under the term of snowbirds. My work focuses on a group of snowbirds living in a small gated community of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, where my grandparents have owned a condo for nearly a decade. The results have then naturally honed in on the documentation of their lives and those of their close friends. This self-publish book, titled Oui, nous avons la TV française (Yes, we have french TV) wants itself both a documentary piece and an interpretation of the Quebec presence in Florida and also an investigation on the limits of the self-titled "Southern Myth", i.e. an idealized vision of the Orange State as a promised land and as a prerequisite to the ultimate bloom of the American-Quebecers’ dreams.
