Ben Mudd: photography and woodworking

Benjamin Mudd received a bachelor’s in fine art photography from Truman State University. He works as a wedding and portrait photographer. His fine art photography focuses on the mundane and the overlooked. Noir scenes of late night street lights and the dimly lit unnoticed corners of everyday existence often capture his eye and imagination.

Benjamin trained in many media types from photography to drawing to ceramics, but has recently started with fine woodworking and is currently working on a collection of bandsaw boxes. These boxes are fun to make and often whimsical. The shapes of the boxes are only limited by one’s imagination.
