    Benjamin Schmuck: Itinéraires

Otherworldly landscapes and ethereal portraiture from the hugely talented Benjamin Schmuck

Posted by James Cartwright,

Parisian photographer Benjamin Schmuck has a gift for creating images that are simultaneously jaw-dropping and quietly understated. His vast and expansive landscape shots are as breathtaking as they come, yet the soft-focus finish of his signature style imbues them with a translucent, softened quality that mutes some of their earthy power. Likewise his portraits take everyday faces and elevate them to an ethereal level, removing them from their natural environs and transplanting them somewhere heavenly. Quite how he does this is a mystery to us, but his ability to turn a suburban back-street into somewhere we’d desperately like to visit is definitely not to be sniffed at.
