Ben Wood


Artist Biography:

Ben Wood started his photography career in London at the age of twenty-one. He learnt his skills by assisting photographers such as David Bailey, Don Freeman and Cameron Watt before establishing his own photographic studio in Clerkenwell, London. In 2000, Wood left London and moved to the Isle of Wight, where he says he received his big break in marine photography, for which he is greatly admired. In 2001, barely a year after he moved to the small island, The America’s Cup Jubilee sailing regatta was held in Cowes. Wood spent the whole week photographing the elegant J-Class yachts exclusively in black and white. Since then, Wood’s work has taken him all over the world and he has produced an impressive and diverse collection of photographs. His collection of sporting photographs are second to none and includes world class sailing at Cowes, motor-racing at Le Mans and horse racing at Chantilly and Longchamps. Also, with an eye for natural beauty, Wood is equally at home photographing landscapes, architecture and still lives. His photographs of The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao capture the abstract beauty of this incredible building.
