Benoit Chattaway (born November 2nd, 1986) is a documentary photographer based in Brussels.
French and English citizen, he grew up in France, the US, the UK and Belgium where he has graduated with a degree of photography from INRACI (Institut National de Radioélectricité et de Cinématographie) in Brussels.
To support himself and his projects he began his career as a portrait photographer. He then worked as a freelance retoucher for agencies and other photographers while performing assignments for private and corporate clients. From 2013 till the end of 2014 he moved to Lebanon where he worked during the context of the Syrian refugee crises.
Attracted by the relation between a sociocultural context and a physical environment his essays are based on a narrative approach. Through a workflow composed of portraits or landscapes (sometimes both) Benoit explores the identity, social status and environment of his subjects.
