Denver Photographer Benjamin Rasmussen Shoots the Syrian Crisis and More in His Latest Update
We love receiving updates from Benjamin and this summer's wrap-up is impressive. He worked on a collaborative project on the experience of Syrian refugees in Jordan with Michael Friberg, as well as completing assignments for Inc., NBCUniversal, Sunset Magazine and more.
^“By the Olive Trees” looks — through both photographs and in-depth interviews — at the experiences of some of the 500,000 Syrian refugees who have fled to Jordan. We are producing a free newsprint publication of the project that we will be distributing widely, and are raising the funds through Kickstarter to offset the printing costs. Every $1 given allows another copy to be printed and distributed. Click here to learn more about the project.
^I photographed Brian Fricano of Sustainable Supply for Inc. Magazine’s 500 issue. This shoot is in the “Recent Commissions” section of my site, along with new work for Outside, The Guardian Weekend magazine, CNN, and more. Click here to take a look.
^Sunset Magazine sent me through Colorado and Utah on a two-day dinosaur road trip. I explored the attractions, museums, and campsites that would make up a future paleontologist's bucket list. See more from the adventure here.
^I was commissioned by NBCUniversal to photograph people for their semi-annual Curve Report, which synthesizes cultural trends for advertisers. This image of Christopher Smith, Merete Mueller, and their amazingly tiny house graces the cover of the book. More from those shoots here.
