Under Montreal is a resource established in 2009 to document the City of Montreal’s sewers and other underground infrastructures. Its author, Andrew Emond, is a Canadian photographer with an interest in the built environment, a subject that he has been actively exploring and photographing in Montreal, Toronto and other North American cities since 2005.

In addition to Under Montreal, he frequently shares his work and experiences through presentations, exhibits and collaborations such as the 2012 documentary, Lost Rivers. If you have an idea for a project or just wish to say hello, please use the contact form on this site or send an email to
