Benjamin studied Cinematography at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles in 2004. Feeling unfulfilled in the pursuit of mainstream Cinema and Fashion photography, Benjamin moved to New York city in 2011 to concentrate fully in the field of Fine Art Photography. In New York, Benjamin began combining his passion for Cinema and still Photography which brought him to work and exhibit in France, Belgium and Russia as well as earn a one year residency with BAD (Belgian Artist District).
Reflections & Projections is the culmination of eight years of working to capture the human condition of how we see ourselves in others and the way we unconsciously lay our expectations upon them. This Abstract Expressionism series of 35mm still photographs and two short experimental videos were produced in Los Angeles in 2018 and will be premiered in 20” x 30” photographic prints and an array of 14 TV screens.
