London, UK Photographer and Photojournalist

Guest Book


: : I' m a Jewish Argentina family law professor who got across your site by mistake and its really beautiful. I haven't seen recent wedding photos in black and white  and I think they reflect the ritual in a sort of deeper way. Thank you for letting us enjoy them. Are you planning an exhibition in Buenos Aires? That would be very nice! Ida Scherman

: : Hi, I came across your website totally by mistake and ended up spending a lot of time looking through the pictures. So I thought I'll drop you a word saying I really enjoy your pictures. Thank you, Keren, Subres Animation, Brooklyn, NYC

: : I love your style, the way you capture life makes everything and everyone look beautiful. Even when you don't capture people at their best moments it still looks like art, a still frame of life. Mira (USA, Florida)

: : Lovely photos. We found them while looking for costume research and they have been most helpful. Aly and Joanne at the College of Dupage, Illinois.

: : Wow. I randomly found your site when searching for Jewish photography, and I thought it looked interesting so I looked through it. Your photography is amazing. It speaks to me and I feel like I have a connection with it. I loved the one of the little girl. I couldn't stop looking at it. Anyhow, I just wanted you to know the effect it had on me. Much love, Laura Diamond, Illinois, USA

: : Classic. I am left with no words:) Mayank, Bangalore, India

: : I hope the dog isn't dead in the Athens photo but it sure looks like it is. Animal Lover from Phoenix, Arizona

: : When I met you last spring (2005) I admit I thought you were just going around the university campus pretending to be some hotshot journalist from Europe. You gave me your website and I admit, I am indeed very much impressed! Keep it up. And do visit us again in Lebanon. Best, Kinda

: : First of all I'd like to thank you, Ben Eden. I'm a Canadian-born Iranian, 16 year old and I want to become a Photographer / Photojournalist as well. Your work truly inspired me and especially your photos of Iran and Isfahan. You really captured the essence and innocence of the Persian people and I applaud you for that. I hope to some day take photos remotely close to the level at which you have consistently done (from what I've seen in your online Portfolio). Once again, thank you for being an inspiration and thanks for being great. I'm sure traveling to Iran was not the easiest of tasks (I say this from experience as I have a 'Western' step mother). Yours Truly, Pajan K.
