Overview participating exhibitions
Céret, a village in the French Pyrenees, was once popular with painters like Picasso, Matisse and Braque. During his stay there Benoît Vollmer turned his back on both the realistic and the consciously disorienting traditions in landscape photography. In their place, he sought refuge in the abstractions of early 20th century painting. He looked for the edges of the cultivated plots, and undertook an attempt to capture an element in his images which is omnipresent, but impossible to grasp: the unceasing wind of the Pyrenees.
Benoît Vollmer (France, 1983) was trained at the École de Photographie de Vevey, has has exhibited his work frequently, especially in France and the Netherlands. He is represented by Galerie Van Kranendonk in The Hague.
