Photo by Sallie Dean Shatz   

Philadelphia photographer Benjamin Pierce works with abstraction and with the figure -- sometimes separately, often together. Unifying concerns in his images are the emotional qualities of form and gesture, and the camera's ability to transform the raw material of the everyday world. His mentors include Arno Minkkinen, Sean Kearnen, Becky Young, and Gabe Martinez.

All images available for sale. Prices on request.
