Hello hello to those who have decided to brave the venture over to my website. Thanks for coming!
My name is Ben Fickling, I am a fourth year student at the University of Toronto. I have – as hopefully you can see by now – a love of photography and sharing it with the world.
Photography much like any other art is a means of expression. In many ways it can demonstrate more emotion, more feeling and purpose than any 140 characters or fb status could ever hope. In my humble opinion it is meant to make one feel things, and in doing so, push oneself out of their comfortable empathetic box.
I am very interested in human rights and conflict zones. One day I hope I can advance the former and prevent the latter through the medium of photography. A little more love in the world couldn’t hurt eh?
So zip over to your closest leather arm, and enjoy some photos from my home to yours.
