Benjamin is a freelance photographer based in Iceland, represented across the nordic regions by Norður agency.
Five years ago, Benjamin embarked on his first photographic mission in an Arctic winter climate. Ever since, Benjamin’s passion for the cold has grown to lead him in search of the North’s most obscure landscapes – the barren, cold and volatile environments that are inhabited by colossal ice structures, carved volcanic mountains and resilient wildlife. Now calling the Sub-Arctic home, Benjamin divides his time between a range of photographic assignments and solo exploration, whilst utilising social media as a platform to share his experiences and perspectives on life in this region to a widespread global audience.
Benjamin's specific works on glaciers aim to convey the fragility and transitory intricacies of glacial ice amidst the current period of accelerated retraction and a changing global climate.
Benjamin has work on assignment with clients as 66 North, Icelandair, Olympus, Goretex, DJI, Land Rover, Suzuki, National Geographic, Arctic Trucks, Air Iceland Connect, Norðurflug, Rammagerðin, Ólafur Arnalds, Arnór Dan, Andrea Maack, Front Runner, Húrra, Bioeffect, Geysir and VICE, as well as the tourism boards of Visit Faroe Islands, Visit Greenland, Travel Alberta and Inspired by Iceland.
