Fortes Mask

Adèle Blais’ mask collection

His unique style, described by one New York critic as “neo pop happy”, combines layers of acrylic paint with textured collages, small text passages and black outline lines, giving his paintings their recognizable signature. The result is a puzzle with assembled pieces, the black space created by the lines being the remnant of the separation that is still possible. Where his subjects are not stripped of clothing and flesh, they are dressed in flamboyant, theatrical costumes.

Art and history

Adèle Blais

Adèle Blais

The Sherbrooke artist is self-taught and has been committed body and soul in his profession for more than 15 years. It is first of all the artist’s greatness of soul that strikes us when we have the chance to meet Adèle.

Les Sublimes reinvented as masks

Her creativity, life and relationships stem from her sensitivity and desire to meet people and to know their history. It’s not surprising therefore that she’s been working for over three years on Les Sublimes, to highlight the stories of incredible women.

By combining masks with quotations, Adèle Blais wants to celebrate women by giving them back their right to speak. These women from Virginia Woolf to Marylin Monroe, Maria Callas, Coco Chanel and Simone de Beauvoir marked the last century. The artist invites people to take an interest in their lives. She wants them to learn more about the history of women so often ignored in the history books.

Masks that highlight women of strength

Fortes masks were created from the works of Adèle Blais’ Les Sublimes series. Five women are highlighted, each with a quote of their own. The artist put her trust in Normand Huberdeau and NH Photographers Group to make high quality reusable masks.

Made in Quebec, the masks are on sale in certain pharmacies and on Each one costs $24.99 and you can get the complete series of five masks for $99.99 . They come in a beautiful packaging with a small cardboard box describing the woman mentioned and her achievements.

A great gift for the Holidays!

NH Photographers partners with the FAEQ

The NH Photographers Group is now recognized as a service partner of the Fondation de l’Athlète d’Excellence du Québec (FAEQ).

An organization at the service of athletes

The FAEQ brings together stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds, including business, education and sport. Its mission is to support student-athletes. They receive financial support in their pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. The FAEQ also contributes to the promotion of role models in Quebec society.

Many of these student-athletes have reached the highest levels of athletic achievement. Some became Olympic medalists or athletes who went on to careers in professional sport, while others made their mark in the workforce.

But regardless of their sporting successes, these young people more often than not become role models for our society, which pleases those involved with this organization.

NH Photographers… proud partner

Normand Huberdeau is one of those, which is why he has given so much of his time to the Foundation… and why the Foundation now recognizes NH Photographers Group as one of its service partners!

Portage Honours Great Philanthropists

The Portage Foundation honours Québec’s greatest philanthropists

The Portage Foundation is a Canadian non-profit organization. Its goal is to help people with substance abuse problems overcome their addiction and live sober, happy, and productive lives.

Since 2004, the Soirée des Grands Philanthropes pays tribute to a prominent personality in the Quebec business world. During an annual gala, Portage thanks leaders, entrepreneurs, and major philanthropists. They’re honoured because of their contribution to Québec’s economic growth and its influence in Canada and abroad.

In 2020, due to pandemic and health restrictions, the Foundation’s leaders were keen to honour the last 17 laureates in a virtual gala event. Always available, the NH Photographers Group committed to providing 500 masks and 400 kitchen aprons to enhance this event.

Bravo for this grandiose work and for the contribution of many of our leaders in the Quebec business world.
