born in Frankfurt am Main/Germany on February 23/1982.

Started journalism at the age of 21 by working for six months as a freelance writer and photographer for a local newspaper close to his hometown.

After finishing his one-year civil service in Great Barrington, Massachusetts/USA, in 2004, Ben did an internship at the German edition of the music magazine Rolling Stone in Munich and at the German office of the news agency The Associated Press in Frankfurt am Main. In between, he kept on reporting for local newspapers.

In 2006, Ben started covering news events as a photographer for the photo agency Inside Picture, besides that he worked on his own journalistic projects. In 2008, he was assigned by the photo agency Action Press and by the Frankfurter Neue Presse, a daily newspaper, for which he worked as a writer and photographer until April 2010.

Since June 2010 Ben works on his own journalistic long-term projects and as a freelance photographer for the New York Times.
