Power of Photography – Benjamin Von Wong
The Power of Photography award highlights photographers who we feel have carved out their own individual style and made a mark on the field of photography. Those whose work stands out from the crowd and stops us in our tracks. Benjamin von Wong’s hyper-realistic style combines special effects and innovative concepts, and strikes a strange balance between ethereal and dynamic. For an example of this you need look no further than his hauntingly beautiful images of models under water.
