‘I’ve never thought about hav­ing a su­per power be­fore, but I think I would like to live un­der­wa­ter, like a fish,’ says fash­ion pho­tog­ra­pher Gilles Ben­si­mon. As the for­mer in­ter­na­tional creative di­rec­tor and head pho­tog­ra­pher of ELLE France, he has shot the likes of Linda Evan­ge­lista, Keira Knight­ley and Beyoncé, but ad­mits he still has more to learn and that his ca­reer has (al­most) only just be­gun. Born in the old vol­cano re­gion of mid-France, he now lives be­tween New York and on planes trav­el­ling the world for shoots. He is yet to de­fine his great­est ca­reer achieve­ment, but says it could be his next shoot (watch this space). See Gilles’ work on page 150.
