Photo artist Harvey Benge works and lives in Auckland and Paris. Since the early 1990s his photography practice has investigated our view of the world. Laced with irony and humor, Benge’s photographs reveal the strange absurdities of life. Moments of the everyday flash with ambiguity and tension, contrast and conflicts. His new body of work, All the Places I’ve Ever Known, further considers the nature of seeing. He shows us details of the world that are sometimes bizarre and sometimes simply and surprisingly beautiful, like a couple of red blossoms fallen onto rough pavement.
