Some things you should have told me, 2013
With photographs made in Paris, London, New York and Rome, this intensely personal, some might say autobiographical book, is a remorseless meditation of loss and misadventure, pain and impermanence. Benge gives voice to the mundane and overlooked. His open-ended photographic sequences record small moments of everyday life that flash past with tension and ambiguity: an urban dream on the edge of reality where figures retreat, seats are empty, phones don’t work. Any and every interpretation is a valid interpretation.
