Ben Cintz Exhibit at KSP

L1003731

July 14—August 10, 2016
Reception: July 17th 1:00–4:00PM
KSP Gallery

 

Artists Statement: Ben’s favorite form of photographic expression is “street photography” which Ben describes as “recording a moment that expresses the relationship of the subject to his or her surroundings.”  The following comment made to him about a series of photographs taken in New York captures what Ben seeks to achieve with his street photos.

Broadly speaking, the images work superbly as a reflection on the human comedy of New York urban life.  I obviously don’t mean comedy in the sense of the images being primarily funny—although there are clearly humorous elements in some of them.  Instead, the photos work together as a kind of celebration of the heterogeneity of American urban life, opening a generous perspective on individual idiosyncrasy and the messy richness of life.  The photos—and your eye—strike me (within these photos at least) as agreeably upbeat, savoring life rather than dwelling on life’s tragic dimensions. (I realize that a documentary photographer, for example, could certainly find photographic traces of deeply sad and indeed tragic stories in Manhattan.  But that’s not at all what you’re up to within this group of images.)

Ben’s work also includes photos that do not fit in the genre of street photography.  The presence of geometric lines, color or shadow may alone serve as the subject of a photograph, as can be seen in some the photographs in the exhibit, which were taken in the United States, Costa Rica, France, Spain, and most recently, Israel.

L1034378Ben began taking and processing photos as a teenager.  His formal study of photography began while a student at Humboldt State University.  He has also taken photography courses and workshops through the de Young Museum Art School, the Leica Akademie, Stanford Continuing Studies, the International Center of Photography, and StreetFoto San Francisco 2016.

His photographs have been published in the Palo Alto Times and the Palo Alto Daily Post.

Ben has a part-time law practice located in Palo Alto specializing in employment law.
