When Words Fail: Surreal Photographic Series by Ben Zank

Photos by Ben Zank

Great art will inspire thought without a word needed to be said, and New York Photographer Ben Zank created a photo series based on this very notion, titled “When Words Fail”. Through self-portraiture, he creates a set of surreal images that stretch the imagination, and expresses the vacancy one experiences when words fail. Each image is unique, creative, and very much thought provoking.

The young, self-taught photographer began taking photos just for fun, and in a recent interview, he shared that his passion in photography began only a year ago while going to school for journalism. In just a year full of work, his photography grabbed enough attention to land him a solo exhibition, on display now in Brooklyn.

Allow your mind to interpret the following images, and check out more of his work here.
