We don’t need to wash the wind

18 marzo, 2021

I needed vacations. The only destination I could go to was my aunt’s bath. My aunt’s apartment is actually a place that I know since I’m a little kid and it has always been a place where I can relax.

The hair is like the wind and the wind is like the hair. The only exception is that we don’t need to wash the wind.

One night in Lausanne (Switzerland), I was going home, drunk, from some friend’s place and I found this dead Christmas tree. I thought «why is this tree standing there?» and the tree must have been asking itself «why the fuck is this man taking a picture of me?». Everything is a matter of point of view.

This one was taken in Bruxelles (Belgian). I was full of worries at the time. I thought I could go into this store to solve my problems but unfortunately everything was locked down because of COVID.

As a very big hiker, I found an abandoned car in the Swiss mountains. This car was very stylish and cool to me. But it was missing something. So I added some flowers that I found nearby to make my picture way more instagramable. Then, I was happy.


Benoit Robert is a film maker from Switzerland based in Paris. He uses photography to express himself through his everyday life. He mostly uses point and shoot film camera to be able to carry it where ever he goes. With a touch of sarcasm, he tries to find the unordinary thing in basic environnements. As a former social worker, the hidden subjects behind appearances are the most inspirational source for his work.
