Jacques Beneich

It is because Jacques Beneich wanted to become a flying pilot that he enters an advertising agency and discovers the photography. After a license of English and some temptations in the rock playing with a band, he devotes to the passion of the photography. He discovers very fast the power oh the photography under all its forms, from Press reportage to the still life. But he prefers, it's to reveal the deep and hidden nature from beings and characters.

It is Jacques Malignon who gives him his real meeting with the fashion photography, when he leaves with him to New york as his fist assistant.

In the New York studio, while following the teachings of master, he is plunged into the sparkling whirlwind of the 80s, consisted of short-lived meetings, sleepless nights but also intense work. It is in the excesses of this new universe that he develops his photographic style, his sense of colors, bodies and light.

On returning to Paris, then specializes in the fashion photography and realizes numerous sessions, editorial and advertising between Milan and New York.

In 1989, he gets acquainted of musicians of Blues and Jazz. He is allowed get by the deep and unique emotion which gets free of faces of these jazzmen and bluesmen. His taste for the portrait takes here its full measure, to the antipodes of the light, twinkling, smiling and short-lived universe of the fashion. He pursues his career by realizing sessions of fashion for magazines, ad agencies and clients, celebrities's portraits for press-agencies and magazines general publics.
