Benjamin Lichtenstein, It’s like a brothel in here, 2015. Unique state silver gelatin print, 84 x 119cm. Courtesy: the artist and Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne

  Benjamin Lichtenstein does not simply take photographs – he creates them. For this young, upcoming artist, the process does not end at the camera, but extends to the darkroom and beyond. Manipulating the images by hand, strong lines and restrained patterns begin to arise, merging photography with collage and drawing.

The multi-panelled compositions embody the artist’s unique imagery through painting masks in the darkroom printing process. Living in Oblivion is Lichtenstein’s most ambitious body of work to date, exceeding the usual dimensions of his work and pushing the limits during the printing process.
