Ben Kidger, Canterbury College







































































Ben Kidger is a sculptor who happens to teach art a couple of days a week at Canterbury College. Ben is one of those guys who you can not help but develop an immediate bond with after a few sentences exchanged. We enjoyed a trip to Paris with the college students in the late winter of 2008 and the idea for these portraits came after seeing something quite similar in looks, in a Hollywood catalogue from the 1950's. Ben fit the bill quite aptly.

I absolutely love these 2 portraits! I would buy them!
He really resembles Norman Bates from Hitchcocks 'Psycho'. Even the photography is very Hitchcock! Fantastic stuff dear Lalo. =)
