London-based photographer/film-maker Ben Ingham has been taking pictures since he was 9 years old. Leaving school early to take up a photography apprenticeship, he moved to New York aged 18 where he worked with photographers Richard Avedon and Bruce Weber. After four years he left New York and spent a year and a half in India working as a film stills photographer and as a correspondent for the Times of India before returning to the UK.
Ingham’s work is characterized by his unflinching confrontation of the subject, never following a format, always taking risks both technically and artistically. He has exhibited in prominent galleries around the world and his work is included in many private collections. Ingham balances his time between working on personal projects and commercial commissions.
In 2010 Ingham directed and photographed his first documentary film “D’Acciaio” for Rapha. Since then has completed over 30 films. Commercial clients include: Rapha, Adidas, Dunhill, Asics, Fullers, Hunter, Stella McCartney and De Beers; and media agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi, The Corner, Adam&Eve DDB and Announcement.
