About Ben Zank Photography:
Photographer Ben Zank creates novels within images. 'We Are Dust' is his latest translation of intimate subtext to evocative, visual libations. As an artist, Zank presents visceral reactions to his highly industrial homebase of New York City. The results are mise-en-scène expressive of the need to escape, the confines of one's surroundings, and comfort in solitude.
Ben Zank, New York born and raised, discovered his first camera, a Pentax ME Super, in the attic of his Grandmother's home. Since then, Zank continues to discover and experiment through the vehicle of photography. His self-portraits aim to reveal and express what letters and words simply cannot.
