These shells belonged to a museum which was located in Corossol, a traditional village of St Barths. It included 9,000 seashells from around the world, making it the second largest seashell museum in the world. The museum is now permanently closed
Laurent Benoit settled in St Barth 25 years ago as a professional diving instructor. It is under water that he took his first pictures, first out of necessity and then quickly by passion. The requests followed one another, for magazines and then for hotels, villas and yachts. Considering himself both artist and craftsman, Laurent Benoit is mostly commissioned by his clients.
