Ben has a unique eye for the natural world. The smell of salt air, the soft rustling of a breeze, leaves crunching underfoot...the viewer feels as if he could step into the world created by a Ben Ham photograph.
Ben works with an 8x10 wooden folding field camera, capturing images on black and white film. He loves this method of photography because he feels the process keeps him grounded. He works slowly and chooses his compositions carefully instead of "firing away" taking hundreds of shots of a scene.
Each photograph is printed on 100% acid free cotton rag paper with just the slightest bit of sheen. The paper is the finest available and gives the image an unusual "quiet" quality. Each print is mounted on acid free board, then double matted with acid free, just off white mats. The glazing is museum glass and provides 98% blockage of UV light and has an almost invisible surface. It is simply the finest glass available.
The work is finished with a distressed frame from Italy. The result is a beautiful piece with old world craftmanship designed to last generations. It is a beautiful compliment to the work and fits perfectly into any decor.
