About the Artist
Ben’s formal training as an artist began in 1962 at the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA) where he discovered his passion through mentor and world renowned photographer Harry Callahan. In 1978, he returned to college to earn an MFA from Yale University.
His fine art background has trained him to photograph as an artist so by instinct he includes artistic elements of composition, rhythm, texture and space in his images. In addition to portraits, he also photographs landscapes and nudes.
Ben has work in the permanent collections of: The George Eastman House (Rochester), The High Museum (Atlanta), The Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), and The Museum of Modern Art (New York).
