It is alive with passion (even in this photo of a photo with glass reflection!).
Benson is a photographer and photojournalist who has been working for five decades...or is it six? It is easier to list the public collections of photography that do NOT include his work than those that do. He has also photographed every U.S. President from Dwight Eisenhower to Barak Obama.
Personally? I prefer Berlin Kiss. Just so alive.
