Currently exploring Belize after some time in Mexico, photographer Benoit Paill√© has spent the last three years travelling the Americas in his ‘tiny house’, a campervan. He says travelling this way has transformed his art, his life and the way he creates.¬†Paill√© is known for surreal photographs made with a powerful flash and colourful gels creating bright, neon colours in nature with no photo editing. He brought this striking style to the coast of Ecuador recently to create this series of photographs. Originally invited for one week for Ecuador’s department of tourism’s ‘Feel Again’ campaign, he decided to stay a month, touring the country by mountain bike. He says, “What an adventure at 3000m of altitude with a trailer of 40kg (camping stuff, gear, camera, etc etc) at the back of the bicycle on a slope of 17%. You want to die but you want to live at the same time.”¬†Paill√© has a degree in biology from the¬†University of Quebec, which makes sense when you view his work and the apparent celebration of nature, and our relationship with it, within his saturated frames.
