Please join us for a viewing of a collection of nude studies of Ben’s muse and wife. This personal body of work represents seventeen years of Ben photographing Trudie.


The story of the artist and his muse is a long tradition in the arts. Some of Ben’s photography heroes such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston and Harry Callahan were all inspired to photograph their wives. Ben’s images of Trudie carry on the tradition of that lineage. They tell the story of their artist/muse relationship.
