Documentary filmmaker of living together
Assuming a photographic practice with an evolving grammar, Benjamin Béchet is as interested in the documentary approach as in the staging.
He has co-founded collectives and participated in collective adventures: Dolce-Vita, Odessa Photograpie (s) or the cooperative agency Picturetank.
His desire for multidisciplinary work has led him to direct multimedia films for Médecins Sans Frontières as well as to stage self-portraits and exquisite corpses.
He works with the French (Geo, Elle, Society, Obs …), foreign (New York Times, Vanity Fair, Spiegel, Stern …) and NGOs (MSF …) press.
Since 2020, he has devoted himself to the new sensitivity accorded to living things and to “human-non-human” relationships.
