it is here and then gone. forever.

About the Artist:
Benjamin K. Nguyen is a self-taught, multidisciplinary visual artist from Northern Virginia. Selections from the latest release of his ongoing project birdsdecay emphasize geometrics in organic form. This focus allows Nguyen to explore the inherent mathematical qualities in his chosen subjects. Whether through visual design, photography, or cinematography, Nguyen is obsessed with advancing ever-expanding visual theories. While cinematography has been his ultimate goal from the beginning, he is not interested in shortcuts. Instead, Nguyen has set out to master the basic fundamentals of framing, composition, time, color, and especially lighting–all of which he takes on with a Zen approach. Before even loading film into a camera, he thought it best to start with graphic design. It was not until after Nguyen proved to himself that he could successfully produce work for major clients that he took up photography, making his first and most essential photographic goal to simply master the capturing of a single instance in time. This is his first show in the Washington, DC area.
