Nathan Benkemoun (1983) is a French photographer born in Nice and based in Paris. In his work, he is mainly attached to show daily life through intimate, absurd and even banal scenes, notably taken in the street. He also tries to illustrate how people interact with environment such as nature, cities or open spaces. He also works in making concrete some common human feelings and sensations such as loneliness, transience of time or the sense of belonging. Some of his series have been taken in Russia during a long journey in between Moscow and Vladivostok or even on the roof top of Opera Garnier in Paris. Nothing is really calculated and decided in advance: He leaves room for chance without ever forcing the actors in the photo (characters, light, and objects).
