About

This is the weblog of non-fiction photographer Ben Hoste.

It is intended as a repository for field notes, research references, and collected thoughts on photography and related projects. To read more about this blog please visit the very first post from March 2017: Hello World.

To view Ben Hoste’s photographic work please visit benjaminhoste.com.

Hoste was born in New Jersey in 1983, raised in California, studied mathematics in college, and holds a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri.

His personal work is driven by an interest in identity–be it an individual or collective identity–and how it interrelates to a given geography. He primarily works in medium and large formats.

His work has been published by Time Magazine, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, Smithsonian Magazine, CNN, Der Greif, and Anthropology Now, among others, and is held in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Links to various articles related to photography (and not) are available via @benhoste on Twitter. You can also find him on Instagram @benhoste.
