Freelance Photographer based in New Orleans. Focuses on fine art, editorial, music, collage, and traditional portraiture. Obsessed with black and white 120mm film.

"The artist describes his work as glamor in the gutter, labeling himself as, “A mess that cleans up well.” He showcases a range of styles, from honoring traditional portraiture, to using collage as a pragmatic and surrealist method of addressing themes of grief, confidence, vulnerability, and how emotional experiences shape identity. Benry believes a portrait ought to bring you close to yourself. Overall, he aims to nurture the theme, discovering a better understanding of how we express our humanity."
