Benoit Paille studied medical biology for three years before he found his calling in the fine arts. Based in Montreal, Paille taught himself the art of photography and found a particular passion for capturing the raw emotions of his subjects. Throughout his photographic journey he’s experimented with many variations of light and color, and the resulting images show his careful attention to these details. In his words:

“I am above all else constantly experimenting with my immediate environment, both social and natural. To put it more accurately, my work focuses on questioning the limits imposed by humanity.”

Many artists find inspiration in his works and utilize his photography as inspiration for drawings and paintings. A good amount of his subjects have freckles which he enjoys capturing. Through his work, Paille successfully captures the mystery and depth that exists in the human face. Check out more of his work here.
