"The Tour de force accomplished by Guy Tremblay is not to have recruited these marginal humans (sometimes a small margin, sometimes a large margin, a margin off the world). The feat is not to have them sit on a bench to photograph them, freeze them in time at a difficult time in their life, even unbearable. The real merit behind these portraits is the presence of the subjects. They are there, entirely here, in their photographs. And to have these wild beings fully present, the photographer had to be too. "

— David Goudreault

"... Guy Tremblay's project is to bring out the dignity of the people photographed by avoiding falling into misery and sensationalism. These photographs allow us to rediscover the humanity of everyone by reconfiguring the parameters of our perception, redefining our possible understanding of these people. They aim to give a human face beyond good and evil, beyond all judgment and knowledge. "

— Jacques Quintin

"Guy Tremblay's artistic approach promotes the essential recognition of the other. Behind each of the portraits is a precious human story, marked by obstacles and, above all, hopes. From the invisibility of difficult social realities and atypical intervention practice, it is now a matter of full visibility, reminding us of the importance of coming together for the respect of human dignity. "

— Étienne Bélanger-Caron
