Ben Barnes


I am a self-taught photographer working in both traditional silver-based black & white darkroom processes and digital imagery. I was born in Upper Sandusky, OH, and live in Columbus, OH. I earned a B.A. in English from The Ohio State University in 1991. I work as a fine art, portrait, event, and sports photographer in Columbus, and make frequent trips to New Orleans where I own a small second home. A northerner by birth, I have been drawn to the American South ever since my wife and I drove from Ohio to Memphis to New Orleans some 25 years ago.
