About Me

My goal in producing an image is to create something that either speaks for itself or needs no voice. I am exploring many modes of photography because I feel that art needs to be more than a defined genre. The modernists, pictorialists, and photojournalists have all been put into categories that, for the most part, were created after the fact.

Check out my website and my flickr stream to see if I'm what you're looking for.

If you're looking for TF, send me a message and let me know what your ideas are. If it's something I think will benefit my portfolio, I'll be happy to work with you.

I am a member of the Minnesota Strobist Flickr group which is all about taking the flash off camera and keeping things portable.

Ben has an excellent eye for light and shadow, for color and shape placement. More importantly, though, he understands the stories that pictures can tell, through the presence of something in the shot, or through its lack. Ben's work is simple, profound, and iconic, and it deserves a larger stage.

Ben Zvan grinds his coffee with his teeth and boils the water with his own rage.

There are some people who are photographers and some people who take pictures all the time. Ben is a photographer.
