Harvey Benge passed away in 2019. He worked in Auckland and Paris and has been a full-time camera artist since 1992. His practice, based on looking at the nature of reality and a consideration of what is truth, investigates the overlooked, the unseen and the insignificant in the first world’s urban environments. He is particularly interested in the notion of parallel lives. “While something is happening here, something else is happening over there.”

In association with Auckland’s AUT School of Art & Design, Benge has conducted workshops with many well known international photographers and curators including Antoine d’Agata, Lewis Baltz, Alec Soth, John Gossage, Paul Graham, Rineke Dijkstra, Todd Hido, Pieter Hugo, Quentin Bajac (chief curator photography MoMA NYC) and Sandra Phillips (curator SF MoMA).
