Phot’Aubrac 2021 : Alain Benoit à la Guillaume


You have all heard of the man who whispered in the ears of horses, I just met the man who gather nectar with bees. The expression is totally verified, this photographer is  flourishing! With the jumpsuit on (but is it useful?), The action begins, the beekeeping smoker in one hand and the camera in the other, with our beekeeper photographer at the controls. There is no hurry, everything in its time, the dialogue is established, each in his place. The bees and their interlocutor are in the same space where each is busy without disturbing the other. This is how images are constructed above a honey com or a pistil, inside an alveolus or a corolla of pollen.

I haven’t told you about the photographs yet and I imagine they are already in your head even before they pass in front of your eyes. Contemplation is no more than a formality, the photographic work is of an irreproachable quality whatever the visual, sensual or intellectual point of view of the onlooker, it is magic. The images are well composed, the lighting subtle, the sharpnesses precise, the harmonies ring true. The works tell, move and intoxicate without the photographed subject or the photographer imposing themselves ostensibly (leave the poetic cloud …). The specialist will find the answers to his expectations through an extremely rigorous documentary reality.

“Ballad for a bee hexagons” is intended as a manifesto to raise awareness of the acute problems encountered by the beekeeping world, with such photographic works, a talented lawyer was found.
