About - Benjamin Everett

About


BeJamin is one of the many nicknames of Benjamin Everett; a self taught artist with a love for wild places.

Initially a landscape painter, it was only in search of source materials that he picked up a camera. Once the speed and versatility of digital photography was discovered, he was hooked.

Fascinated by the subtle line between perception and reality, BeJamin is neither a realist nor surrealist, but searches for an interweaving of both the physical and the spiritual nature of experience; our place within a larger natural order.

Inspiration comes from artists like Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Caspar David Friedrich, George Inness, Georgia O'Keeffe and Edgar Payne. A keen interest in eastern philosophy, led him to the work of Japanese woodblock artists like Hokosai and Hiroschige.
