Time's Arrow Photography
The Photography of Ben Faresich
Since I held my first film camera as a small child, I knew there was something special about the world of photography. I've always been fascinated with the way the camera could capture a single moment of a person or place and freeze it in time. Whether it's a majestic view of the mountains of Iceland, a Brahmin priest praying on the banks of the Ganges, or a dancer reveling in the New York City night life, the camera affords us all a glimpse into the world around us, shared universally, but not often appreciated. I enjoy using the camera t0 capture some of these moments, with the hope that others can appreciate them, and maybe take a moment of their own, to stop and to see.
Some of my biggest influences are Art Wolfe, Bryan Peterson, Peter Lik, Alfred Stieglitz, and so many of the talented photographers and artists that I've met through the years.
My work has been featured in Carpe Nocturne magazine, and as part of the web design for QXT's, a night club in Newark, NJ. http://www.qxtsnightclub.com
Exhibitions include the Parallax Art Fair in SoHo, The Bayonne Community Museum, the Tenafly Public Library, and several art shows at QXT's, which I also curated.
Time's Arrow Photography will be featured at the upcoming Parallax Art Fair at the Prince George in New York City November 16 - 18, and at the Parallax Art Fair at the Soho Studios Convention Space in Miami, FL from December 7 - 10.
