Paris-based artist photographer Gonzalo Bénard, creator of human portraits in the black and in the white, talked with Atelier Balbec about his recently completed satellite-photography experiment, B Shot by a Stranger, in which he voyeuristically shoots young volunteers around the world in their most intimate moments. Here is a look at our interview:
Gonzalo Bénard is one of my favourite contemporary photographers. I particularly like his self-portraits as they are of an intimidating quality, ignoring common beauty ideals and stereotypes. In his recent series of pictures, he focuses on capturing people in their vulnerable, intimate, nude, private, and lonely moments, telling their story from the perspective of a stranger. It’s a beautiful and haunting series.
