About the artist
Benjamin Malick is a French photographer based between Paris, Libreville and Dubai.
He was born in France to French-Algerian parents. After his family moved to Gabon when he was only a few months old, Benjamin grew up surrounded by tropical wild nature and local influences.
This African country possesses one of the richest varieties of flora and fauna on earth sparking his early interest in the beauty and diversity of the region’s landscapes, wildlife and native communities.
Enhanced by his multi-cultural upbringing, he developed a strong passion and curiosity for travels and adventures which today inspire most of his documentary-style photography.
Using both digital and analogic equipment, Benjamin’s work is built as much around the complexity of light as on the simplicity of his scenes capturing the essence of their natural beauty, emotion and delicacy.
— I like the relation between the subject and my camera. This possibility of seeing theworld through a " third eye " fascinates me. The photographic act is a challenge and my goal is to magnify faces, silhouettes, events, human works, animals or natural sites.
