Benjamin Hoste is a non-fiction, documentary photographer based in New York.
He was born in New Jersey in 1983, raised in California, studied mathematics in college, and holds a masters degree in journalism from the University of Missouri.
His personal work is driven by an interest in identity–be it an individual or collective identity–and how it interrelates to a given geography. He primarily works in medium and large formats.
His work has been published by Time Magazine, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, Smithsonian Magazine, CNN, Der Greif, Anthropology Now, The Columbia Missourian, LA Record, LA Weekly, and Narratively, among others, and is held in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
