VisionQuesT 4rosso : Benjamin Juhel : Le Murmure Du Crépuscule


VisionQuesT 4rosso presents Benjamin Juhel‘s exhibition Le Murmure Du Crépuscule in collaboration with Valeria Bella Gallery of Milan. Juhel stages landscapes and characters within the great freedom of composition that photography gives to choreography and space.

The works of Le Murmure Du Crépuscule tell of a peaceful wandering in that transition time when, as night falls, streets get darker and interiors lit up. Shot in California, these works maintain Juhel’s precise distance and form of his cinematic and lively gaze on the urban territory.

Man never appears, yet his presence is felt in each of the images. Windows lit up, cars are parked, traffic lights are flashing,and signs are illuminated; tangible signs of the passage of men and women that we can only imagine.

The approach to twilight and a singular vision of colour, of chiaroscuro and of what light as a glow allows us to perceive, gives the the observer plenty of time to watch.

The plasticity of the images, that resemble drawings and are very pictorial, the choice of printing on Japanese carbon fiber paper, continue to support Benjamin Juhel’s plastic approach to photography, who seems increasingly inclined to create imaginative and poetic objects/images distant from reality.

Each image suggests a moment of expectation and opens a narrative field for our imagination. Juhel leaves the observer all the freedom to imagine the previous and subsequent sequence of each work on display. He gives only a few traces, so that everyone can think freely about the development of the scene, overwhelmingly pervded by solitude, absence and fragility.


Graduated from Ecole des Beaux Arts in 2005, Benjamin Juhel has worked with photography and film. In 2007, he was the director of a workshop with The Company Theater in Mumbai called “Body, Space, Area”. This time of artistic research using video, dance, and sound fixed the way he’s attached to choreography, rhythm and perception in his work. The years after he created a few “Live Cinema” performances, physical and sensitive films, played differently each time they were shown. His interest for gesture and architectural space can also be seen in “Silence” ( Dance – Thierry Mabon ) and “Ark” ( Dance – Anne Charlotte Baranger ), two forms of dance films. In 2015, he work ed again with darkness and black with “Les Abandons”, a photography series of quiet abandoned bodies and silent cityscapes. Since then he has created a series of works series using darkness, physicality and the feeling of time. His work has been shown in many exhibitions and film festivals ( Londres, Milan, Paris, New York, Buenos Aires, Bordeaux, Tokyo… )

He is the founder and creative director of the creative studios Maison Mouton Noir ( Paris ) and Outsiders ( Los Angeles ). He works for Art & Design, music, luxury lifestyle and advertising projects. His work has been featured many times in international magazines ( Milk Decoration, Vogue Italia, AD Mexico, Hypebeast, Wallpaper… ) and some of his films won awards in international festivals ( Helsinki Awards Film festival, Los Angeles Independent Authors, Barcelona Indie Awards… ).
