Thinking Inside the Box | An evening with John Benton-Harris
Thursday 12th December, 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Join us for an evening with photographer John Benton-Harris in a seminar about Thinking Inside the Box - revealing his history, background and influences, and how they have worked to mould who he is today; how it has shaped his journey as a photographer.
John will present images throughout his career in monochrome and colour, captured on different camera formats, using traditional methods as well as new digital technology. Born in New York City, he completed his formal education and obtained a diploma in commercial photography. He received a scholarship from Alexey Brodovitch to attend his legendary Design Laboratory at Richard Avedon’s studio in 1962.
His professional career began as an industrial photographer followed by photographing for the United States Army, before relocating to Great Britain in 1965 as a staff photographer with London Life Magazine.
John's work has been displayed in many exhibitions across the globe and many of his works held in collections in museums and galleries including the Victoria & Albert Museum and National Portrait Gallery here in London.
