Benjamin Vnuk combines the classical visual language of photography with a strong contemporary aesthetic, placing the photographs somewhere in between the present and the past, creating a sense of timelessness. He has become known for his daring and sensual portraits, always illuminating a rare kind of beauty.
Benjamin has always been interested in colour and form; the fact that he became a photographer was somewhat of a coincidence. The very moment he bought his first digital camera he knew that he had found something special. That was the beginning of a whole new life, he left northern Sweden for Stockholm and started working as a photograph assistant.
Influenced by the meticulous style of Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and Mikael Jansson – who he worked with for a couple of years – Benjamin has developed his own aesthetic. Putting a modern twist on the classic art of photography.
His editorial clients include Vogue UK, CR Fashion Book, Bon Magazine, Scandinavia S/S/A/W, Crash Magazine, Russh Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and Benjamin has worked with such clients as Elie Saab, Gant, Esprit, Wella, H&M and Escada.
