In his personal work, Ben uses visual cues and contextual references to raise questions about human behaviour. Embedded in his work is an ironic view of human indifference, amidst the consequences of environmental catastrophe.
Ben draws upon stereotypes found in commercial photography, creating ambiguity around the origin and even the authorship of the work. This is suggestive of society’s predisposition to consumer culture and its influence on social identity and authenticity.
Ben is a freelance photographer, living in Castlemaine, Australia.
