Ben Nathan

(United Kingdom)

Ben Nathan works across different media, from painting and photography to film and sculpture. Explorations in the urban infrastructure act as a catalyst to question the changing nature of our cities' environments. The works are also a way of documenting the evolution of urban change. Recent work shave focused on experiences investigating the UK power generating industry.
