Meet the Benetel’s

Christian Benetel

Alexandra and Christian Benetel have more in common than a family name. This brother and sister share the same passion for photography and at a young age are starting to create some distinctive portraits.

By turns dream-like, vulnerable and pensive their images have a similar look and feel and suggest a view into a very private fantasy world.

Even though neither sets of images look like Cindy Sherman you can see her influence in the whole notion of using the self as a canvas to present ideas of the world. Alexandra Benetel has even spoken about becoming someone else and taking ‘on a role’ in her photographs.

Like the more surreal self-portraits of Kyle Thompson I expect to see many more interesting images come out of the Benetel family.
