The °CLAIR Gallery is pleased to announce that it is acting as the international representative for the French photographer, filmmaker, and writer Benjamin Deroche.

His photographic work considers natural elements and their relation to the human condition. He is renowned for his formidable landscapes and an nuanced colours, along with the diversity of perspectives his images evoke. “It seems to me that my work establishes itself in the details,” Deroche explained during an interview with Julie Lefèvre. “The question for me is then: What form of detail will allow me to delve beneath the surface?”

Deroche was born in 1981 and works between Brest and Paris in France. His most recent series, Les Illuminations, can be seen on his °CLAIR Gallery artist page *here*.
