The Benstamatic v3.029 photography exhibition by Adelaide photographer Benjamin Liew, which starts this Friday, includes a brand new series of wildife images, some of the artist’s award-winning prints and never-before-seen photographs.

While most people are normal, live life and breathe air, Benjamin Liew lives and breathes photography.

"Getting caught up in the world of professional photography and meandering away from the fun and spontaneity of the art is not hard to do," Ben says. "Being commissioned to shoot a project is one thing, shooting for one’s own fulfilment is another.

"Benstamatic is all about using what tools are available at any given time to capture a moment, a rare sighting or a strange observation. It’s about realising that everyone sees life differently, we all have the same tools to capture it and it’s about sharing those captured moments with everyone."

Benstamatic was first exhibited exactly a year ago in April 2010 which also happened to be Benjamin Liew's first solo exhibition. Later in the year Benstamatic v2.029 made up a sixth of the Skrambled Eggs group exhibition for the SALA 2010 festival in Adelaide. Benstamatic v3.029 marks the end of the .029 series and it's going to be… "wild" Ben says.
