A photograph is more of a question than an answer, it's a clue to understand why I'm here. It shows me elegance, absurdity, the space around me and the power of naked truth. Walking in the streets becomes a walkabout, a meditation where light turns the ordinary into a magical moment. Listening to urban complexity, bluffed at every corner when the visible and the imaginary collide. Feeling closely related to the world. Reality ? Fiction ? Never mind the bottle...
My name is Matthieu Benhayoun,
I'm a professional sound engineer and photographer from Paris, France.
Catching sounds around out there all day
Mixing them down together all night.
Ear to here.
Walking street after street, marveling at details
Craving for a split second.
Eye to I.
