Benjamin Rasmussen will be traveling around the country this summer. If you want him to swing by with his book — which we'd highly suggest — just drop him a line. Here's what he's been up to so far this year.
Benjamin was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch, along with 29 other great shooters. There has also been a lot of movement with By The Olive Trees, a project about the lives of Syrian refugees in Jordan that Benjamin shot with one of his favorite photographers/people, Michael Friberg. It has been shortlisted for the Leica Oskar Barnac Award and images from it were selected for the American Photography Annual, AP30. The duo produced an 80-page publication that will be launching on April 19 at the TGIF Gallery in Queens, New York City.
In January, Benjamin was in El Nido, Philippines shooting a travel story for Outside Magazine. It was a drama-filled three days with pounding rain, gale force winds, and about 90 minutes of good light. Take a peek at what I came away with here.
Late last year Benjamin shot a campaign for TINCUP Whiskey, which was recently launched by the folks who brought you Jose Cuervo. Benjamin hung out with TINCUP’s maker, wandering through the Colorado mountains to discover the landscape that inspired the whiskey’s creation.
