alternative landscape by BenoitPaille alternative landscape by BenoitPaille
not sure about the experimentation of the extrat light during the 4 minute shooting ( the red and the purple in the bnackground ) ... anyway its an experimentation , no rules !


This is a photography of light installation (real light, real square 1x1 meter) i set in nature or where during the night you have usually no lightning, I try to redefine the space/landscape for my own purpose: create a poetic space/time moment. And questioning the reality of what is a landscape .......... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ............ ........... ........... ........... ............... ........... ............

...... « Par ses gros pixels de lumière, Benoit résume nos villes, notre besoin de lumière pour écarter les sombres inconnues se cachant dans le noir, notre peur de ce que nous ne connaissons finalement peu, notre nature. Nous ne somme finalement qu'un point de lumière autour duquel se masse notre planète, qui nous supporte alors que nous la rendons aveugle. Nous sommes là, flottant dans le vide de notre nombril, illuminant les alentours en espérant repousser les ombres de notre ignorance, de notre incapacité à accepter ce qui nous entoure, ce que nous sommes. Benoit nous joue un tour de magie, et nous cherchons encore à découvrir ses ficelles. Certains diront qu'il n'a voulu que nous montrer un carré de lumière... Non... Il y a plus... Il y a notre vie dans cette lumière, notre propre reflet...» Thomas Marius Tourral, Art Critic

I always loved this series. By the way, how did you ever get the light to levitate?

it looks like the reverse of a tv almost, very surreal and very captivating. it is like something from a horror-story only the monster is nonexistent leaving nothing for on to pin the unsettling feeling on except your own nagging subconsciousness trying to explain what is the purpose of the white square in such a secluded place

I love this series!! It reminds me of my work + plus it give me a great reminder of when I got work with George Clooney in the movie "Leatherheads". This looks just like the set in the foxhole scene.

I've been enjoying this series.

Have you ever thought of trying to capture one of these (especially the wooded ones) with multiple exposure HDR?

I wonder if it would add another layer of depth, or take away from the expressionistic feel.
