Benjamin Freedman (b. 1990) is an artist presently working and living in Toronto, ON.
Working in a range of mediums, including photography, bookmaking, film and installation, Freedman’s practice questions photography’s role in describing the world and its implications in a range of professional practices, particularly in history and science.
While probing the relative truths and deceptions of photography, he purposefully adopts both science fiction and documentary style characteristics in an effort to create expanded narrative projects. Freedman is particularly interested in photography’s role in mythologizing historical and contemporary events and its subsequent consequences.
