Benjamin Stone-Herbert is an emerging, Sydney-based artist. His practice is concerned with the materiality of photography, light’s affect on these materials and the process of experimentation with chemistry. Working mainly with 19th century techniques, with an emphasis on the hand-made photographic object, his unique photographs offer an insight into the beginnings of photography. His work provokes the reconsideration of photography in today’s digital world.
Benjamin has worked as a printer, photographer’s assistant, technical assistant and has had over 10 years of darkroom experience. Benjamin has had a number of solo exhibitions in Sydney and has been exhibited in Berlin and San Francisco.
