About Ben
Ben Thomas is a photographer and visual artist born in Adelaide, based in Victoria, Australia. Ben’s work has centered around the cities and urban spaces that we live in. His “Cityshrinker” series (2007) was internationally acclaimed and considered to be one of the pioneering projects exploring the now popular tilt-shift technique. Ben’s study of urban spaces continued with “Accession” (2012) utilising mirror and kaleidoscopic techniques to highlight how repeating patterns and objects act as the basis of our our urban surroundings. Most recently Ben has developed his latest series “Chroma” (2015) and “Chroma II (2016), a further deconstruction of cities and urban areas with a primary focus of the use of colour and flatness that poses questions of how society defines the places in which we live. Ben is a Hasselblad Master 2018 and has recently completed campaigns/assignments for The New Yorker Magazine, Sony, Cake, Singapore Airlines, Penguin Books and Chronicle Books.

I was born in 1989 in country NSW, Australia. Since graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor of Design, I live in Melbourne where I embark on self initiated projects - the most satisfying kind. Most of my exploration is within the fields of collage, illustration, animation and photography. Whilst in Melbourne I also work as a freelance designer to save dollars for overseas adventures. Coming home to Melbourne post-travel only reinforces my appreciation of this city.
