Bénédicte Karyotis takes us to New York, and Robin Eyraud to Brittany. Two universes linked by a common need: to escape. These are our two readers picks.

Robin Eyraud

Robin Eyraud, 32, started photography 8 years ago, while he was still a student. Today, the media has become his main activity. “I am developing a photographic approach both anchored in reality and imbued with a certain interiority. It is important to me to mix these two dimensions. I only work in film, and I print everything in my lab. I am very attracted to the photographic “object””, the artist tells us. With Survenance, Robin Eyraud takes us to Brittany, by the seaside. A breath of fresh air.

Bénédicte Karyotis

Professional photographer Bérénice Karyotis lives and works in Paris. “I especially love street, night and landscape photography. I like to approach my subjects by isolating one person or detail in an urban or rural environment”, the artist tells us. Last winter, she travelled to New York for the first time, and captured the Big Appel through her series God Bless America. “Although I thought I knew the city, through my cinematic and photographic culture, I was still impressed by the immensity and energy of the American city. I worked like I always do: I’ve captured New York in a minimal way, focusing on details and colours. I particularly like winter and its unique tints”.
