Surreal Portraits of a Powerless and Lost Young Man


New York-based photographer Ben Zank creates intriguing portraits rich with surreal elements. The Bronx native's portfolio boasts countless images, each with its own narrative. The fine art photographer produces scenes filled with mystery and oddities that allow the viewer to form their own context for the respective images, giving some sort of backstory that has led up to this point.

Zank's subjects are often himself in dapper attire, oddly lost and playfully searching through his environment for an undisclosed something. The young photographer, whose work clearly takes inspiration from Rodney Smith and husband-wife duo Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, tells us, "This set of photographs represents my current and past emotions. Being in control, being powerless, stuck, being free again, etc. Think of it like a power struggle."
