Photographer Remi Benali has been documenting the world for two decades, visiting over 80 countries -- from the North Pole to the Sahara Desert and the remote jungles of Sumatra to the high plains of Tibet. His work celebrates people clinging to traditional ways of life and our relationship with Nature. Remi is a recipient of numerous photographic awards including an Award of Excellence by Communication Arts and a Natural History Award at the Picture of the Year Competition for which his work was also selected as one of the 100 Pictures of the Century (Dolly The Sheep for Life magazine). His work has been published by leading publications such as Time, Life, Newsweek, National Geographic, The Sunday Times, Paris Match, Le Figaro magazine, Stern, El País, El Mundo or La Repubblica. The photographer lives now in Arles with his companion Heather Robinson.
