We came across Benoit Courti's stunning black and white photography the other day and knew we had to share his work with you. Benoit is based out of Paris and worked as a music composer before becoming a photographer. The stark contrast and masterful use of light in Benoit's photos is quite extraordinary.
From Benoit's biography:
Perhaps it’s because Benoit Courti was a music composer in his past life that his photos have a lyrical feel. A professional portrait and art photographer since 2010, the Paris-based creative has made a beautiful set called Deep Black where he’s staged a series of symbols against black backdrops. While some of these photos appear light and playful, still others have an emotional heaviness about them that can’t be denied.
"Illuminating simple subjects, minimal compositions whilst preserving a strong expressiveness" Courti says was the thought behind this series.
These photos are not from the Deep Black series but are equally as stunning.
Benoit has prints for sale, which you can purchase here.
