Hi, I'm Ben!
I'm a photo student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
Photography took a larger role in my life back in high school when my dad agreed to lend me his camera. I loved the creative possibilities that came with the instrument. I spent my free time visiting online photography threads with the intention of learning more photography techniques that I practiced eagerly. I woke up before sunrise many mornings to use the sun’s light as it rested just above the trees and left late at night to capture the lights left by cars as they crept past my slowed shutter. As I continued shooting, I moved to getting my hands on books featuring the photo essays of accomplished street photographers. I grew to admire the glimpses of life that these photos showcase so I began taking pictures of more people. I started by walking around downtown, later moving to social rallies.
