Ben Rollins is a photographer and artist currently based in Atlanta, GA.
Growing up in the Panhandle of Texas, Ben Rollins daydreamed of a nomadic life as a rock 'n' roll drummer. He picked up paper routes to earn money for his first drum set. Between band practices, he cherished afternoons drawing with his older brother, touching pencil to paper and creating art with his hands.
It wasn't until his undergraduate years that Rollins held a camera. It was clear from the start that as a photographer he possessed a natural gift, a mature eye and an insatiable interest in people and their environments. After college, Rollins worked at an award-winning advertising agency in Texas, rising quickly to Director of Photography and Video.
In 2010, Rollins enrolled at SCAD Atlanta for an M.F.A. in Photography. His goal was simple: to once again create art with his hands. Rollins observed how the imprint of the human hand creates imperfections in all things, and it is these imperfections that make his artwork evocative and deeply personal.
Over the past few years, Rollins has worked with national publications and organizations such as The New York Times, The Guardian, Wall Street Journal, American Cancer Society, and Google to name a few. Long-term projects have taken him to China and Central America, where he documents international humanitarian work. Most recently, Rollins' work has explored the infinite connections between people and their environments and can be found documenting stories across Eastern Europe, Africa and South America.
Ben resides in Atlanta, GA with his wife and their adventurous three kids and extra friendly golden retriever.
