Ben Zank’s Black and White Self Portraits Emphasize Concept Over Technique

“The inspiration came after looking at some photographs by Rodney Smith. I’m also slightly colorblind, so doing some photos in black and white gave me a chance to focus entirely on the concept rather than the color.” says photographer Ben Zank on his recent self-portrait efforts. Ben is an NYC based photographer that hails from the Bronx, and that caught the photo bug when he found an old Pentax SLR in his grandmother’s attic. Ben often tries to come up with different fine art concepts for his images.

They can be described as surreal and almost based out of fantasy. More from this series is after the jump.
