Arjan (pronounced Airy Anne) Benning works for various advertising agencies, cultural institutions, museums and magazines worldwide. In his work he seeks to find the fine line between authenticity and amazement. His work is staged, and to him “form” figures prominently as part of the content. He always strives to ensure that by understanding form, his staged shots always seem effortless and natural.

He has won many prizes for his work, including 1 gold, 5 silvers and 4 bronzes at PANL (the dutch Association of Photographers), and his name is listed in Luerzers in their 200 best advertising photographers.
