Interview with Lou Benesch
When I discovered Lou Benesh’s illustrations in a little collection of french erotic poems at the back of a bookstore I put the thought in my mind somewhere to ask her to illustrate a book of erotica for Sendb00ks. Almost a year later I had come to know her brother and at his wedding I stood beside her throwing confetti and asked her if she was a reader (yes) and if she would be interested in collaborating with Sendb00ks. A few weeks later we met at Le Petite Celestine under the heat lamps and Lou opened her sketchbook to show me a pencil outline of a woman laying on the moon, cum running down her body and into the sky in that sensual sleepy position she captures perfectly in all of her work. We began talking about the writers we loved and came to the agreement that we would send her work inside a collection of erotica by Anais Nin.
A week later a few of us went to Lou's apartment in Bastille to make this video.
The original paintings are available on our website.
