The Lament - now available from photobookstore UK, comes with exclusive signed and numbered print


Photobookstore UK now have copies of my most recent book-work, The Lament, from Dewi Lewis Publishing. This 96 page hardback book comes with an exclusive signed 6"x4" print, see image below.

The Lament is partly fiction and partly autobiographical. The pictures mine the unusual and the perverse. They make strange connections and exploit the unexpected. Nothing is as it seems, though we nevertheless sense that there is a truth in everything. Mystery prevails and it is up to the viewer to bring his or her own life experience to the reading of the work.
The Lament deals with loss, change and the inevitability of impermanence. All thoughts, emotions and circumstances that each and every one us have experienced and have dealt with in our lives. There is sexual misadventure too. Yet despite the apparent angst, Benge isn’t about to slit his wrists anytime soon: a wry sense of humour runs through the work and if you look hard enough you might even spot a sense of optimism.

Photobookstore also have the last few copies of my self published limited edition work, The Month Before Trump. This also comes with a signed 6"x4" print.
