About

Currently based in Portland, Oregon, Ben is a member of The Portland Darkroom, a member-supported community space for the practice of analog photography whose mission is to keep film photography alive and accessible in Portland. He enjoys variety and utilizes many formats and mediums: from 110 subminiature to 4 x 5 large format, color and black-and-white, silver gelatin and archival inkjet, negative and positive film. He is an experimentalist by nature. In past lives he was a hardcore birder and mountain/ultra/trail runner.
