Abbaye de Montmajour

by Benoit Paillé

‘‘ As Montmajour Abbey isn't of a religious nature and is more attached to the future than the past, I photographed this magnificent restoration craftsman who enjoyed striking a pose! ”

The Artist

Aged 26, this young Canadian photographer studied medical biology for 3 years before turning to the arts. He is now a renowned, self-taught photographer, whose work has been published several times around the world. He has taken part in many exhibitions in Canada, Japan, the US, Barcelona, Moscow and Paris. His projects are all people-oriented and based on portraits and night-time themes.


Abbaye de Montmajour


Montmajour Abbey is a haven of peace in the heart of the Arles area. The site was founded in 948 by Benedictine monks. In 2013, the National Monuments Centre gave Christian Lacroix carte blanche to recreate the "Island of Montmajour" of his childhood and design the "Treasure Island" of his dreams.
