Ben Gest was born in Caldwell, NJ. He earned a BA from Rutgers University and an MFA in photography from Columbia College, Chicago. Gest has exhibited nationally and institutions such as The Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Gest currently works as an Adjunct Professor at Columbia College, Chicago. During his time in Syracuse, he rarely stepped away from his computer. The images he created are the result of countless hours spent on compiling many different images to create these believable yet artificially created photographs.
Gest considers the images created at Light Work “an outgrowth of his interest in photography’s potential to tell the story of human life while considering its ability to create objective truth.” Gest participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in August 2005.
- Light Work was founded as an artist-run, non-profit organization in 1973. Its mission is to provide direct support to artists working in photography and related media through residencies, publications, exhibitions, and a community-access lab facility. Light Work's Fine Print Program, featuring exclusive signed prints by acclaimed photographers, represents an excellent way to further your personal art collection while supporting Light Work’s mission of offering opportunities to emerging and under-recognized artists.
