A R T S 269 CS D Ben Ham has been making the connection between his camera and the South Carolina coast for most of his life. A photogra- pher since childhood, Ham now depicts the Lowcountry's distinct landscape in his large-format photography. Though living in Hilton Head, S.C., has lent the photographer plenty of scenes to immortalize on flm, he also loves traveling to the top of the Rockies, to Southwestern deserts and through Pacifc vineyards, all the while using a wooden feld camera to capture his stunning images. Located on King Street, Ham's new, expanded gallery comprises over 2,000 square feet of space in which to absorb the artist's enormous detail-rich works. His gallery on Hilton Head Island is twice the size and is also the site of Ham's fully equipped studio, complete with a darkroom and a frame shop. In 2009, he published Vanishing Light, a 144-page book flled with nearly 70 images print- ed on heavy LumiSilk paper. The photographs are complemented by stories about each adventure, written by Ham. Apart from the book, Ham only sells framed, limited-edition fne art pieces. BEN HAM IMAGES Ben Ham Images 843-410-1495
