The Look of Benjamin Lennox

May 7th, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (20)

There is no shortage of young photography talent on the scene, but it takes a lot to stand out from the fray. Lately we’ve been noticing the dynamic work of Benjamin Lennox and his uniquely arresting style. With images that are sharp, sleek and striking, Lennox has carved out a niche for himself, shooting for magazines like 10 Men Magazine, Muse Magazine and VMan.

His latest story, Chromatic for 10 Men is an expressive feast for the eyes, that captures everything we’re loving about his style. From the creative use of accessories & props that give the portraits an off-kilter feel (note the precisely placed rose petals dangling from Jake Shortall‘s mouth), to those kinetic movement shots that look like something out of a dream, Lennox knows how to grab your attention. Dramatic imagery aside, Lennox can also create a classic black and white like none other, his simply beautiful shot of Ginta Lapina shows a whole other side.

    Wow, he really owes a lot to Laurence Passera, Warren du Preez / Nick Thornton-Jones and Richard Burbridge.

  2. mikey d says:

    Look at Lawrence Passera, Benjamin has clearly been ‘inspired’ by him….

  3. signe says:

    hmmmm, while i agree partially about the first image, i would not classify this as ground breaking? this feels a little bias for some reason, i also think most of the work that is striking in these images is that of whoever styled these shots. more recognition for the stylists!

  4. jamie says:

    the first comment from jacob is very valid, i hadn’t seen those other photographers works before and after seeing this the work above is very “inspired” by that.

  5. G says:

    I think nothing’s 100% original nowadays and even though Jacob’s comment is very valid, this is still some photography to get WOWED by.

    Great work Benjamin and the whole team you’ve worked with in all these shots.

  6. Singing says:

    GINTA = HEAVENLY.
    BENJAMIN LENNOX ASSISTED LAURENCE PASSERA SO THAT’S WHERE THE INSPIRATION COMES FROM MAYBE. BUT NOT A BAD THING LEARNING FROM YOUR MENTOR, AND THIS POST SHOWS SOME VARITY IN HIS WORK AT LEAST

  7. host ;-) says:

    WOW not bad, not bad at all <3 Ginta

  8. Dr Plop of Shropshire says:

    Oh please do stop with the jealous comparisons. Benjamin Lennox is very talented. Who cares if elements of his work are inspired by anything. His work is original and very pleasing. He has broken through and I commend him. I should be very jealous but I’m not because it is true talent. Credit where credit is due.

  9. Anti B. says:

    Wherever or however he got the inspiration, the images are stunningly familiar. [And I didn’t look at any of the other photographers work.]

  10. JW says:

    Ginta is lovely no matter who shoots her…what a joy it would be to wake up and be greeted by those beautiful eyes! (=

  11. dancing says:

    Yes he assisted passera & it shows it is not what you know but who you know. This is also the case for most of the successful photographers around. Copy well & you will be rewarded.

  12. Julie says:

    Jacob is right, I can see Passera’s influence. Still lovely pics and I’m sure he’ll find his own style soon.

  13. sam dauphin says:

    the only picture I like is the one with melodie monrose and i guess ginta. Either than that, this all seems nothing special

  14. The PinkNet says:

    All right, Mr. Passera’s work was clearly ‘inspired’ by Nick Knight so what?
    Fashion photography today is more than just being a groundbreaking talent anyway….It’s a business and you have to approach it as such. I think Lennox’s work is really good and is getting a great response and there are very few interesting young photographers out there.

  15. Tom says:

    Benjamin’s work is brilliant. And he will only get better. You dont think Laurence Passera, Warren du Preez and Richard Burbridge had influences? Nick Knight? Erwin Blumenfeld? Dan Jackson not been influenced by David Sims? No other new photographers are producing work like this at the moment. Besides what has Laurence Passera done in the last 2 years? Besides some garbage story for Numero and an awful cover story for Dazed? Which is a shame because he was amazing.

  16. Diana says:

    I’ve checked out the guys that Jacob mentioned and it’s true. Most of this work has been inspired by these other photographers but even in saying that, I still think that these photos are incredibly impressive.

  17. Dawn says:

    Rose petals in mouth = deja vu…
    Have you seen the whole spread with Melodie Monrose ?

    http://beautyisdiverse.com/2012/05/melodie-monrose-by-benjamin-lennox/#more-75522

    Would you say Lennox was heavily inspired by model Fatima Siad last year ARISE beauty editorial by Itaysha Jordan ?

  18. Frank says:

    @Dawn, maybe it was Mert & Marcus in 2010, that started the flower trend so much en vogue in the 70’s

    Would you say Jordan was ‘heavily’ inspired by this?

  19. Frank says:

    And Mert & Marcus were probably inspired by Kate Bush

    Get a grip people or get a camera and try to do better that the people you are criticizing.

  20. David says:

    Carbon copy of Laurence Passera’s work. There’s “being inspired” and just plain COPYING! Saying Passera hasn’t done anything in the last two years isn’t an argument.
