Life and work[edit]

Benge claims that his photography is inspired by anything that attracts his attention while walking in the city. Benge stated that "the most successful photography raises questions, offers something else to the viewer".[2]

His first book, Four Parts Religion, Six Parts Sin was about Auckland. His second was about Dalai Lama's visit to New Zealand. Not Here. Not There, contains cityscapes.[2] You Are Here (2007) chronicles his visit to Tokyo and was shortlisted for the Prix du Livre at the 2006 Rencontres d'Arles.[1] He has twice been a finalist of the award.[3]
