Ben (BENJAMIN BUBB ° UK 1992) creates a contrastive, clair-obscur view of an almost fossilised
impact on landscape and natural anomalies. He shows them in a certain power and greatness,
as well as their in their ephemerality. When a wave becomes a metaphor its poetry becomes
unstoppable. As does the surfer in action. The wave as a metaphor for human condition.
Fortune and misfortune.Bubb is intrigued by the superhuman and puts an end to anthropocentrism.
The sense of being alive, by times represented by a hint of certain derealisation.
