Benoit Linero


A wall gable, a tattoo parlour, the fringes of the hotel, boutiques... Benoit Linero interpreted his collaboration with Le Pigalle as a photographic ramble around the neighbourhood. He immersed himself in Pigalle, zooming in on every aspect of its unmistakeable architecture, capturing scenes from everyday life which “suggest its edginess through a thousand tiny details”. A specialist in decoration, food and portraits, Benoit Linero, with his photographer’s chiaroscuro eye, was given a unique opportunity to record the works that brought Le Pigalle into the world.
