Photographer Ben Hopper presents ‘In a Box’

Growing up and having started photography in sunny Israel, I got used to shoot a lot of my portraits outdoor, on locations. London is a bit limiting, to say the least, weather-wise. I photographed a lot of my test-shoots inside my small flat in North West London. Having no private studio to hand – I’ve tried to make the best of it. The process of being a photographer at the beginning of his career made me think that these photos, which I’ve taken throughout the past two years, could make an interesting collection – especially in a few years time when l’ll be working in my own dedicated space. This is a preview of a series I call In a Box” – Ben Hopper
