Benoit Paille loves to experiment a lot of different and creative ways of capturing light, color, and detail. He said: “I am above all else constantly experimenting with my immediate environment, both social and natural. To put it more accurately, my work focuses on questioning the limits imposed by humanity." In his portraits, Benoit captures the raw emotions of his subjects. It is for this reason that a lot of artists use his work to practice drawing or painting. Curiously, Benoit is a self-taught photographer. He spent three years studying medical biology before shifting to Fine Arts. To date, he has had exhibitions in Paris, Moscow, Japan, Barcelona, and Los Angeles. He currently lives and works in Montreal, Canada.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
