AFPS Feature: “Behind the Big Top”

Having worked on two of Australia’s most iconic surfing magazines, Tracks and Waves Ben has been immersed in Australian surf and beach culture for over a decade and is most at home with sand between his toes and a camera in hand.

He works primarily with traditional film – namely black and white, which he believes offers a tonality that is unique when photographing the vibrant land and seascapes of the Gold Coast.

Behind the Big Top is an ongoing project that documents the lives and the people who have made performing their life.
