I am a story teller at heart and photography has given me a whole new way to express this.
Moments from the stories of others to my own creations, new lives and the worlds they inhabit.
Discovered photography with his iPhone in 2009 and since then he has been an active part of the iPhoneographic and Mobile Photography Community. His work moves from Street Photography, to images taken from stories and dreams and then through to dark fantasy and gothic surrealism. Benamon lives in Cornwall with his wife, children and cat, Midnight.
Benamon’s achievements include:
I have contributed to "The Art of iPhone Photography" by Bob Weil and Nicki Fitz-Gerald, which will be published by Rocky Nook and is available now for pre-order at Amazon.com. My work is also featured in "Mobile Masters - Crossing the Threshold" by Dan Marcolina, which is an iPad book available now through iTune. I have also published several collections of my work via Blurb and presently working on two childrens books, ‘The Canvas sky’ and ‘Childr the INKfish’
