Robert Benjamin: River Walking

March 18, 2019 to July 25, 2019
Robert Benjamin: River Walking
316 Waverly Avenue
Syracuse - 13244 NY
Light Work is pleased to present Robert Benjamin's River Walking, a solo exhibition of photographs and poems spanning four decades. A self-taught photographer and poet, Benjamin's work, often centered around his family, offers a simple and honest consideration of what it means to live and to love with intention. Enchanted by color and the beauty of photography itself, Benjamin uncovers poetry in the everyday.

Robert Benjamin grew up in Northern Illinois around suburbs, cornfields, lakes, and the remaining prairies. After a brief encounter with college, he traveled-criss-crossing America , eventually to Paris, finally settling in New York City. There, he decided that photography was what he wanted to do. With the absence of any academic training or community he followed his own direction-creating a style and interest that continues to this day. His photos and poems grew intuitively, and draw on the experience of everyday life, far removed from the art world. In 2010, he agreed to a show of his work at the Denver Art Museum. In 2011, the museum and Radius Books published the book of this work, Notes from a Quiet Life. Benjamin continues to write and photograph. He and his family live in Colorado.
