Benjamin Swanson’s still life photographs focus on the study of materials.

Increasingly interested in the tension between manmade objects and the natural world, Benjamin’s work is driven by contemporary debate surrounding sustainability, the environment, and consumerism.

Benjamin initially came to photography from a background in sculpture and installation, and as a result his images demonstrate an acute material and spatial literacy. His compositions are beautifully stripped back to balance light, texture and space.

Early project ‘The Conquest of Materials’ set the foundation for this interest, and led him to embark on a Masters in Contemporary Photographic Art at the University of Westminster, where he produced key body of work ’The Isolation of Objects’.

Benjamin has been shortlisted as a Magnum Emerging Photographer, and his personal projects featured in British Journal of Photography, and Source Photographic Review, amongst others.
