This site is a collection of works that started back in 1995. I started taking photos with image and story in mind and my collection has improved in quality ever since. The purpose of my photos is to take the everyday and put a spin on what is seen. Using different depths and angles I hope to portray a sense of wonder and to put a new perspective on a common sight.
My past projects have included monuments and natural wonders from around Europe. I had the opportunity to see a good portion on Western Europe and across the United States and was able to take some wonderful photos. I have displayed many of them here and have several more in the works.
I’ve also spent time in combat zones in the Balkans and the Middle East. I spent some time taking photos of things that I experienced while delployed in these areas.
Currently I am focused on older abandoned vehicles and equipment. Being as how I am currently living in the southwest corner of Missouri and am surrounded by farms and old mines subject matter is in no short supply.
I am also looking to expand my work to the human form. Work from past photo shoots are being worked on and I hope to have displayed soon. I am looking for models of all types. Please contact me at BenjaminSloma@yahoo.com for modeling, publishing, or editorial enquiries, or feel free to contact me via bubblemail. All of the images are available for purchase here on the site but are also available in different mediums that I am more than willing to provide.
I am also available to take pictures of events, weddings, and also for personal or family photo shoots. For the Four State locals I have art being featured in the Koka Art Gallery in Carthage, MO. I hope you enjoy what I have on display here.
I welcome comments so feel free to do so.
