Benoît fell in love with photography late in life, after having explored different creative avenues (writing, playing music...)
His original impetus was to try and capture some of the magic of live music. Live music is as much a visual as an auditory experience and the right photo can convey a little of what the live event felt like.
He travels a lot profesionally and now always carries a body and a few lenses just in case. He also discovered that patterns and textures fascinated him and starting exploring that, often through the distorted selective blur of a lensbaby lens. More recently, he took to using ND filters for long exposure shots in a variety of circumstances.
While he doesn't believe he's achieved a point where the work he produces can be recognized as his, he has been told that some of his pictures wouldn't be out of place in a Ikea decoration display. To which he says: "that's a start!"
