Benoit Courti takes black and white to another level
Paris - OCT 08, 2013

The French artist Benoit Courti has developed a highly captivating style since 2010, moment when he left his career as a music composer to become a professional photographer.

Although, his photographs cover a wide range of subjects what truly makes Courti stand out among the thousands of photographers online are his striking black and white images. Their straightforward simplicity goes hand in hand with their elegance. Courti achieves this with a masterly domain of lighting techniques and a keen eye for composition, sometimes daring other times surprisingly classical. In all, the stark black and white contrast that his images show adds an aura of mystery and intimacy that turns traditional portraits into gritty and dark images that are beautiful and almost haunting.
