A stranger,DairyQueen,Montreal by BenoitPaille A stranger,DairyQueen,Montreal by BenoitPaille
Very good selection about my Stranger Project : FUBIZ
New Book Portfolio: Book
interview: virusphoto
publication plateforme 14 mag : série Môtel



Future exhibition:

Ukraine 23-20 avril 2010:
Kiev (23 April), Lviv (25 April), Odessa (27 April), Simferopol (28 April), Kharkiv (30 April)

Maroc 11-13 juin 2010: Festival Art Continue (Marrakech)

Canada 24 avril-24 mars 2011: Centre d'exposition Raymond Lasnier ( Trois-Rivières)

Japon 12 mars-10 avril 2011: Towada Art center (Aomori)


Démarche:
Interroger le monde moderne dans lequel on vit et tenter de briser l'individualisme et l’anonymat de la grande ville. En allant dans des Non-lieux (métro, centre commercial, rue passante à l’heure de pointe) et en demandant à des étrangers de les prendre en photo, je brise pour quelques instants le fonctionnement habituel de ce monde moderne. Je rend ces Non-lieux existants en y créant un événement dont l’étranger va se souvenir.



Approach to photography:
Questioning the modern world in which we are living and trying to break this individualism and the anonymity of the big city. By going into “Non-lieux” (no existing places) (subways, malls, and crowded streets at rush hours …;) and by talking to people to take photos, I break the usual way this modern world works for a few instants. I make real these “non-lieux” by creating an event that the stranger will remember.

Wow, usually I just look at your pictures and admire them briefly, but this one really captured my attention. I love the look of attitude on her face... you captured her at a great moment. Thank you for breaking into those 'non-lieux' places and creating something amazing

The genu-recurvatum & strabism make her special... I like her tee-shirt ^^

not as if it mattered for the end result, just out of interest, are you using film or digital?

sorry that my questoin is purely technical. your pictures say it all, I really adore your concept/standpoint of the things you create. very inspiring. I started doing similar things, but the other side of coin. (there are no pictures online as of now) sometimes I wonder if my approach is too negative, but well.

he answer to this question for another shot and I think, if I remember well, it's a pinhole

is not a pinhole, this looks like a 100mm

any good photographer can speculate on the camera or the lense, the depth and so and so, but i think that it would be more constructive if you talk about what drives you to talk about that : pinhole, big or small depth, bokeh, deformation, tilt-shift effect etc... cause, the novices doesn't learn anything like that. :)

Nice shot- she is very pretty and makes a more classically 'attractive' model than many of your other subjects. she seems to have a story to tell though which makes her ideal for this series.
