Evergon is regarded as a genuine cultural icon in Canada. He is an artistic and social pioneer who focuses on contemporary questions concerning cultural and body diversity and diversity of identity. For nearly 50 years, the artist’s career has centred on bold photographic, technological, and aesthetic research.

Evergon is an immense creative force: identity, body diversity, love, desire, and ageing are at the root of his work. He celebrates, often humorously, all facets of life. The simultaneously political and sensualistic nature of his work raises questions on sexual orientation. Through collages, the art of photocopy and an entire array of exploratory photographic approaches, including the Polaroid, Evergon revisits, with rare vitality, genres such as portraits, landscapes, and nudes.
