I stumbled on Benoit Paillé the other day and was so totally captivated by his photography. Each photo tells a detailed story.
I think that photography doesn’t represent reality, but creates it.
In this series he used a plastic light square with 300 LED lights that were linked to a dimmer. He used fishing line to hang it from the trees. I’m not sure how he got it to hover over the dirt and rocks.
My approach towards landscape is to incorporate a poetical component that will trigger an emotional response linked to the form and the light. I wanted to create something that wasn’t really a landscape but rather something engineered, so as to move the viewer in a different way.
