Olympique de Marseille. Frederic. Guy/De Maisonneuve, Montreal, 2014

Why Marseille? I asked.

“Always, always, from when I was a kid, always only Olympique de Marseille!”

Frederic didn’t mind the rain and was happy to show his colours for the camera. He is from Togo and came to Montreal 5 years ago to study economics and is just finishing his last term. He was to young to remember his team playing Red Star Belgrade in the European Cup final in 1991 but I made sure to remind him of that match. Frederic intends to stay in Montreal – it’s a beautiful city, we agreed – and plans to work in real estate. May you sell many homes Frederic!
