Montier Photo Festival




  Artisan photographer, Benoit was born in 1981 in Mende. He lives in Lozère since always. He discovered photography in 2004, but was always attracted by the image since his childhood. Younger, he drew a lot. Today, his digital camera has replaced his pastels and pencils. Living in Lozère, her sources of inspiration are inexhaustible and his gaze on the landscapes is filled with admiration. He photographs the perpetual change of nature over the seasons. These landscapes give him moments of emotion that he wishes to transcribe through his images. It is particularly sensitive to cloudy and turbulent atmospheres.The wild landscapes of the Lozère take on a completely different dimension when a furtive light is invited. Through his images, he wants to make us aware of the fragility of nature. To ensure that future generations can still enjoy these landscapes, they must be preserved.



Arround the Aveyron, Cantal and Lozère, a high volcanic and granitic plateau stretches over 1300 km². This is the Aubrac Plateau "Alto Braco", which means "highly lands" en occitan. The Aubrac has the particularity of offering large wild and preserved areas. We can sometimes observe a tormented sky pouring a few snowflakes sprinkling the ground with an immaculate white. In contrast to ink skies, the purity of the snow reveals surprising contrasts. Through this series of images, I wish to demonstrate to the public that it is not necessary to increase the carbon footprint by long and far travels to discover beautiful landscapes. France is beautiful and contains many treasures, let us preserve them.
