Benoist’s ca­reer has had a strong, clear di­rec­tion, and his work has won nu­mer­ous prizes…

Benoist Clouet grew up in a small vil­lage in Nor­mandy, France. His par­ents and grand­par­ents were farm­ers. In 2014 he pub­lished his book

in French and English. It’s an in-depth pho­to­graphic study of the land­scape of the Arc­tic archipelago of Sval­bard.

As well as the Arc­tic, Benoist also spe­cialises in pho­tograph­ing the wild ter­rain of Scan­di­navia, Ice­land and Hokkaido, Ja­pan’s north­ern is­land.

Benoist’s pho­to­graphs have won nu­mer­ous prizes, in­clud­ing a gold medal in the 2012 Global Arc­tic Awards.
