    We've been owing this guy a thread for a while now, I realised we were missing one while trying to find feedback on some of his editorials.. of course they're all up in his site and he's everywhere on the web with his own blog, but it's still far better to discuss what he does instead of just browse through it!

    Ben is based in London and has been collaborating frequently with Dazed & Confused.

    One thing that has made me appreciate his work is how textured and pure is always is.. it often gives the impression of being very simple due to the apparently natural state it's all captured in but he still never fails to integrate some clever contrasts and beautiful lighting that makes it all memorable.
    I also love how his models always have a sensitive impression.. not in a fragile way, they just seem aware of their clothes, the landscape.. and just 100% convincing.

    Thank you, OTS!
    The Givenchy shot is my favorite, the mood of the entire story reminds me of Vanderperre's story for AnOther F/W 08, featuring Natasha Poly.. I don't think Ben's necessarily getting his references from Willy but he's certainly part of a wave focused on projecting cold scenery, urban escapism and lost souls that's been going around for the last few years.. :heart:

    no problem ^_^
    I can def. see some similarities to Vanderperre's Poly editorial too. both are so simple, but mesmerizing :heart:
    I can't believe he didn't have a thread, I've been admiring his work for a while :crush:

    ^ I've noticed we've fallen behind in the last couple of years here, there are so many fantastic up-and-coming photographers and stylists that are missing a thread.. kind of sad. I remember when we were the first and pretty much the only result google would turn up for certain photographers and now there are a few, except us! :doh:
