Benjamin Orion Rush is a visual artist, educator, and sometimes curator and writer. He was born in Concord, New Hampshire (USA), and studied Drawing at the Art Institute of Boston before earning his BFA in Photography with honours from the Savannah College of Art & Design. In 2009 he earned his MFA from the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. He continues to live and work in Glasgow with his wife, tsBeall.
My work as an artist has several pathways. As a photographer I’ve sought out projects that discuss man’s impact and interaction with place and landscape. This includes photographic series of Post-Katrina New Orleans, Maine, and Mississippi. My other research (also largely-lens based) explores the relationships we have with knowledge and understanding, and how ideas (often through images) are gathered and transmitted.
