Michael Benson


Michael Benson is a writer, photographer, filmmaker, and exhibitions producer. His writing has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Smithsonian, ArtForum, and other publications. In the last decade he staged a series of increasingly large-scale shows of planetary landscape photography in the US and internationally, appearing in museums from London, to Brisbane, to Barcelona and beyond. In 2008-10, Benson worked with director Terrence Malick to help produce space and cosmology sequences for Malick’s film Tree of Life, which drew in part from Benson’s book and exhibition projects; the film won the Palm d’Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
