    I think this guy's works are seriously amazing. You may question what exactly they are — photography or mixed media, but I really enjoyed them (and some are thought-provoking).

    I've been watching Ben for many years. Oddly it started as he was one of the first to shoot with the Samsung NX100 - he may even have been sponsored by Samsung. Talking multi-media I believe he is also very handy with sound....

    Very talented!

    I don't care for his pencil work, but I like they way he just uses the initial capture as just a piece of the final work. There's no reason we should limit ourselves to what the camera sees at the moment of capture. It's what the MIND sees that matters. And as for that "music"......glad I have a mute button. :nutkick0:
