BEN Ham is a world-renowned fine art nature photographer. His stunning black-and-white landscapes, captured on film, hang in private, corporate and government collections from Australia to Africa and all points in between.
Ham is a self-taught photo-grapher, inspired as a teenager by the work of Ansel Adams. He works with an 8-by-10 folding wooden camera, dark cloth over his head, using sheet film in that same methodology.
Ham is predominantly known for his arresting and peaceful images of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Through his travels, he has built extensive collections of the Rockies, the Southwest, the Pacific Coast and Italy, which have become highly collected.
He opened his first gallery in 2011 on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, followed by his second gallery at 416 King St. in Charleston in 2013. In 2017 he opened his third gallery in Old Town Bluffton, South Carolina.
A visit to one of his galleries will transport you into the magic of a Ben Ham landscape, as you step into a world created through his unique eye. Bring his art into your home to experience that magic for yourself.
