The Conversations Around the Table photo series is incredibly surreal. While many a conversation has taken place around a table before, none have quite been like this. As though straight out of a dream, or an avant-garde film, this photo series focuses on chatting humanimals, eccentric nudists and more. More often than not, conversations can take on a life of their own, traveling down unknown paths for a philosophical look at life. The Conversations Around the Table photo series visualizes this concept.
Shot by Gonzalo Bénard, a photographer born in Lisbon, Portugal, and based in Paris, France, the Conversations Around the Table photo series is quite explorative. He explains his "need to express through art and to create a dialogue between living beings; to lead to the oneness of humans and their surroundings. Man-Woman-Animal. Dialogue leading to oneness of gender, ritual, rite. Dialogue about life."
