  • Eritrean National Cycling Team, Photographs of Emmanuel Benoit.

    Eritrean National Cycling Team, Photographs of Emmanuel Benoit. Eritrean National Cycling Team, Photographs of Emmanuel Benoit.

    An exhibition of Emmanuel Benoit's portrait photographs, from the Eritrean national cycling team series, to be held from 1st March to mid-April at "Look Mum No Hands!" 49 Old Street, London.

    I travelled for a long time around the Horn of Africa before I began my adventures in Eritrea in February 2010.

    Eritrea is a country with 4 million inhabitants, situated between Sudan in the West, Ethiopia and Djibouti in the South, and the Red Sea in the East.

    The story that follows, an extract from my travel journal, is a testimony of a beautiful encounter. On this occasion, to be able to share the images there and then with the Eritrean sportsmen, I found it necessary to use Polaroid.

    « Early in the morning in Hotel Luna of Massawa, cyclists are having breakfast. They are accompanied by their coach Salomon Samson, as well as their technical assistant Hadi Barhi. We exchange glances and I ask them if they would allow me to take their portraits before they start the training.

    They are all part of the national Eritrean cycling team, comprising of 25 cyclists in total. These 9 particular cyclists are following an intensive training program for one week, after which 7 of them are going to be chosen to take part in the Tour of Libya from 13th to 17th March - a journey of more than 600 kilometres. Salomon tells me that considering the topography of Eritrea (the capital Asmara is more than 2500m above the sea level where Massawa is), they are very good climbers but might find it a challenge to race in Libya due to the terrain being so flat.

    They are all between 23 and 25 years of age.

    Shooting takes place in a relaxed atmosphere, and everyone takes the photographic session very seriously. When the time comes for me to catch my bus to Asmara, I realise that I haven’t asked for their permission to use the images. Back in the hotel I prepare the documents they need to sign for me, and we all have lunch together. They have just finished an 80 kilometres cycle, so they eat a huge amount of pasta followed by fish. There is no amphetamine available to dope the sportsmen. I grab a cup of tea with Salomon and catch my bus to Asmara ».

  • Urban countryside

    Urban countryside Urban countryside

    Rory is doing something mental in the yard............

    The countryside in London is dying out. The sparse remaining pockets left of the original land that existed before the city expanded are becoming fewer each year, and this is not good. It’s not good for the environment and it’s not good for our sanity.
    This installation will aim to simulate this tranquillity in a busy urban environment, and give visitors a moments peace and seclusion from the sonorous grind of the bustling metropolis.
    More to come..
