A photographer of magical people and mystical places, David Benjamin Sherry makes darkroom images in a digital age.

Raised by hippies in Woodstock, Sherry attended raves and assisted David LaChapelle in his teens, then earned degrees from RISD and Yale, while establishing himself in NYC’s downtown art scene. His psychedelic mix of fashion and fantasy has made him an international favorite in magazines and galleries.
