Juxtaposing smooth adobe stucco with the smooth contours of a toned female nude perched within its niche, Daniella in the Adobe Ruins showcases how spectacular lighting of a photograph can illuminate so many details of the figure. Daniella's glowing skin and defined muscles create an undeniable force in the center of the frame and refuse to release the viewer's gaze.
About the Artist
Ben worked in the fashion industry for many years before leaving it behind to focus on creating art. He comes from a family of artists and he believes that working with a model to create an image that can bring up real emotions is the highest form of photography. His favorite photography takes place at night, when he can use lighting and the stars to paint something truely unique with his camera. Ben was a professional outdoor athlete and is an Explorer and photographer for Nat Geo, so much of his work focusses on the human connection to nature at its most elemental. He's one of the few photographers to be published in both Vogue and National Geographic.
