Teaching Artist, Ben Sardo discovered his passion for photography while at Gateway Community College specializing in photographing animals. He is known for capturing very striking angles to personify his subjects. He also photographs still life and nature focusing on details that are quite fascinating to the eye. Ben has won recognition for his work at Six Summit Gallery in Ivoryton CT, the Durham Fair, La Grua Center in Stonington CT, as well as the Oxford Academy in Westbrook CT and The Guilford Art Center. He believes photography is an important skill to have to help people remember experiences. Recently he has been challenging himself to capture portraits of people of different ages to see what he can create. Ben hopes he can bring inspiration to whoever chooses to work with him.
