“I AM AN ACTOR”, photographer Franck Bohbot captures portraits of actors in their places of daily work.
Our last year’s feature of Franck Bohbot’s “Light On” photo series attracted much attention. From 2013 – 2014, the photographer and visual artist has captured different places and buildings, which perfectly reflect New York City’s unique and charming lifestyle. This time I want to show you a little more of his work. Since 2015, the French born creative mind is working on an ongoing project called “I am an actor.” Due to the competitive nature of this profession as well as the high costs of living in New York City, most actresses and actors have to devote time to an additional part-time or even full-time job to support themselves.

In collaboration with interviewer Philippe Ungar, Franck Bohbot takes pictures of diverse New York City based actresses and actors not on stage, but in their places of daily work. Each photograph shows a frozen moment of the actor’s daily life. Together with an interview, the series gives personal details and insights into the everyday life of the actor. Furthermore, each image explores the idea of playing a role in everyday life just like on stage. You can find much more of the series on Franck Bohbot’s website, just check it out here.
