Honorable Mention at the “Vienna Photo Awards”

Recently the work I’ve been doing received an honorable mention at the annual “Vienna Photo Awards.” This is the second year in a row that I was honored with this decoration.

“A Lovers Quarrel” Censored, Limited Edition, Art By ©Ben Fink,
Archival pigment print and Mix-media and Encaustic Painting, Signed and numbered, verso. Price Upon Request,

In April 2021 I met Adrian and Rick who are life partners in Palm Springs where we capture these images. They were in from Boston where they live full time, visiting some friends for a few days in PS, we set up a background in the garage and proceeded to do a number of shots to capture the base imagery for what becomes these final pieces.

We worked about three hours shooting various scenarios using old paintings as inspiration that I have close on hand either on my phone or computer. Often I send these references to my models ahead of time so they will have some sort of idea what I have in mind. On occasion they send me images back that they find inspiring. This opens up a line of communication that they truly become collaborators in the process. Capturing Adriane and Rick, together and separately I created a library of imagery that I used later as a base for the work.

“The Strength Of A Man” Limited Edition, Art By ©Ben Fink,
Archival pigment print and Mix-media and Encaustic Painting, Signed and numbered, verso. Price Upon Request,

“The strength of a man is not exclusively determined by the size of his body but, more by the integrity of his character. The ability to reflect on his own actions and take responsibility for his life is soul building.” -Ben Fink
