Ben Cauchi

b. 1974, New Zealand

Born in 1974 in Auckland, Ben Cauchi currently lives and works in Wanganui, New Zealand. The focus of Cauchi’s practice is the 19th Century technology of wet-plate photography. His introspective and moody images embrace the magic and mystery that fascinated photography's early pioneers. Working with a limited range of props in his studio, Cauchi strives to create images that capture a suggestive moment from an open-ended narrative.
