Ben Hassett


Color is Ben Hassett’s first photographic monograph and it brings together the editorial imagery he is known for with previously unpublished pictures and unseen personal work. In a lyrical journey through this artist’s archive, Color establishes a link between his editorial magazine work as a beauty photographer, and the vast private and until now hidden catalogue of still life and landscape works. Designed by Fabien Baron with a text by Charlotte Cotton this very special collection of photographs will be printed with UV inks allowing the great range of colors so important to this collection. The book is a limited edition of 1,000 hand numbered copies.

British photographer Ben Hassett, (born London 1974), who lives and works in New York City, has established a reputation as one of the world's foremost beauty and portrait photographers in the world today. Experimenting with shadow and light - color and form - he follows in the tradition of Irving Penn and Irwin Blumenfeld, as a commercial photographer who also creates Fine Art. His work is held in the collection of the National Portrait gallery in London and he is a regular contributor to Vogue magazines worldwide. Alongside his commercial studio practice, he creates experimental still life and landscape photography.
