Morandi, Staël, Leiter.
We needed someone with broad shoulders to cover Chamonix; a bold photographer, capable of hanging from a rope above a crevasse or a giant glacier to get the shot if needed.
We chose Benoit, an exercise-averse, anxiety-riddled hypochondriac.
He ticked precisely none of these boxes but produced a Portraits de Villes Chamonix that is a marvel of sensitivity and understanding of the role the city plays on the world climbing scene.
