The artist

Born in 1980, Benoît Lapray studied photography in Lyon. In 2006, he joined an advertising photography studio near Annecy, in the Haute-Savoie, France. Seeking inspiration in the sublime mountain settings that surround him, he started producing his own works in 2010: the series “The Quest for the Absolute” testifies to this period, staging super heroes from American Comics in grandiose landscapes. In 2014, he decided to move to Paris to pursue his activity as a photographer and photo retoucher.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

Since Beno?t Lapray is persuaded that "a photograph must tell us a story", the utopian images that he produces are characterised by a narrative in which prehistoric animals suddenly emerge from the past and invade contemporary cities. For the series "The Widlife" (2016), the setting is the business district of La D?fense in Paris. This concrete jungle that is usually home to workers has made way for terrifying dinosaurs, and they are moving about freely as though this has been their natural habitat since the dawn of ages. Beno?t Lapray dazzles us with his mastery of settings, lighting and framing. In his photomontages, he restores the atmosphere of supernatural films and the spectators can easily imagine themselves projected in the midst of a film shoot. We are reminded of Jurassic Park by director Steven Spielberg, but also the spectacular stagings of photographer Gregory Crewdson.

DAMIEN DUFRESNE

As Damien Dufresne says himself: "I let my hands do the talking". His approach is totally new in that it's at the crossroads of makeup, body art, artistic direction and photography. The resulting complexity, technicality and beauty are impressive. Damien Dufresne, a make-up arti...

PEDRO JARQUE KREBS

Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at t...

Born to expatriate parents, Thibaud Poirier spent his childhood in many cities around the globe, but out of Houston, Montreal, Buenos Aires, and Tokyo, it was the latter that has influenced him the most: “I discovered architecture there, in particular by Tadao Ando, and it became...
