Benjamin Haywood is a photographer based out of London, where he is currently studying for BA Hons Photography at the London College of Communication.
Benjamin’s work is attributed to British life and culture, focusing in on remote places within Britain to gain a better understanding of them, as well as allowing the viewer to gain a better understanding of them and their presence, as well. ‘The Kensington Guide’, a book dedicated to the ‘posh’ area of Kensington in London, is an objective view on its distinctive ‘detachment’ of its surrounding London Burroughs, as well as the quiet, fleeting aura that it suggests.
Other projects include his book, ‘Little Britain’ – A look into the life of and an effort upon his part to further thoroughly understand the culture of and what essentially is, ‘British’. Benjamin follows small towns upon the West and Southwest coast primarily, attempting to wonder how and why most of these places have not been dramatically affected by other cultures in the same way that many have within the past decades.
Unlike many of his predecessors, considering the thorough approach and dynamic that Benjamin works with in creating his photographs, I have no doubt that he will continue to prosper from it, as a result. You can view Benjamin’s work collection here. Check him out, and keep your eye on him!
