Photos by Ben Reynolds
Interview by PSQ
Australian photographer Ben Reynolds takes photos of cars. His interest in photography began on a trip around Australia with two mates in an XB Falcon station wagon when he was 18 years old – but that’s not what sparked his passion for shooting cars. That honour goes to a beaten up old Datsun that Ben captured on his first roll of film more than twenty years after that road trip.After his first dalliance with photography when he was 18-years old, Ben didn’t return to it until twenty years later when he enrolled in a photography course at Perth TAFE in 2010. He’d been suffering Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and he undertook photography to help his recovery.
