Perhaps it's because our feature artist 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.
The thought behind this series was “Illuminating simple subjects, minimal compositions whilst preserving a strong expressiveness.”
See our prior feature in 2013 and Benoit's beautiful photographs in 'Other Worlds' (pages 32-35).
