Benjamin Goss is a Houston, Texas born photographer currently living and working in Karlstad, Sweden. All his work is created in the darkroom, printed and developed by himself. I’m always excited to see a photographer experimenting with analog techniques, Benjamin uses many. Just to name a few: 35mm film, B&W silver gelatin prints, large formats plates and Polaroid among others. The main thing that gets to me isn’t the (gorgeous) atmosphere these analog processes bring to his images though, it’s the overtness of the models. Benjamin has found a way to really get to the people he portrays, they drop their guards. Just by looking at these pictures you feel like feel like being really close to someone you never met – almost feeling like a voyeur glimpsing into someones life. The portraits are intriguing, deep and emotional, and I just can’t stop looking at them. Enjoy!
