Mathis Benestebe is a 20-year-old photographer. Born in Saint-Nazaire, he lives in Toulouse and graduated the ETPA photography school with jury honors in 2023. His work revolves around intimacy, autobiography and lack. He wishes to testify the importance of memory in the construction of identity.
For Mathis, photography acts as tangible proof of its own reality. He is a control photographer, he likes to think and plan. As if to materialize impalpable symbols as accurately as possible, he carefully chooses each element of his images. He is striving to find emotion where it hides.
