Benoit Pailley lives and works New York and Paris.
He is inspired by contemporary art and his passion is reflected in his elegant still life and installation photography.
The objects become “works of art” in an environment that recreates gallery spaces. When conceptually appropriate, he builds installations that frame the objects in unique and stunning ways.
His first solo exhibition, Passport, was presented at the Flux Foundation in Geneva in March 2008. He is a regular contributor to Sleek and Double magazines and won German’s Lead Award in 2006 for best photographer in Still Life/Architecture category.
