Ben Gately Williams

BIO

Ben Williams’ latest large-scale photographs of empty beaches, cavernous ruins, and all sorts of natural wonders confront the viewer with the awesomeness of nature, but also with human vulnerability and mortality. Taken with a vintage 35 mm camera, the color photos present that people are terribly small and fragile compared to what is around us.

Williams is perhaps best know for his portraiture, many images published in magazines such as Garden and Gun, Kiawah Legends, among others.  Combining sharp technical skills with expansive creativity, Williams creates photographs that are more than visual documents.  They are poetic compositions, recording an inner spirit…something beyond the physical. Keenly aware and uniquely sincere to the presence of the person, Williams unlocks chambers of his subjects to reveal their personality, psychology, internal struggles, and insights of life. Though his “touch” is deft, there is a candor and energy about his portraiture that encourages us to see someone in ways we never have before.
