New York: Benton Collins Photography

Benton Collins was recently commissioned by New York goldsmith and designer Jivan Wolf to photograph a select part of her hand-crafted jewellery for an upcoming book that will illustrate her work. Jivan studied design at the University of Paris and also studied the ancient classical methods of jewellery fabrication in Egypt and Greece. These studies lead her to become an expert goldsmith and lapidary, and she strives to combine the look of old and new in her pieces.

Before the start of photography, Benton consulted with her in-depth, going over many different approaches, surfaces and lighting techniques before settling on the uniform look presented in this Spotlight. His goal was to achieve the right look and direction to showcase her unique pieces in a simple yet elegant way.

Benton has been producing memorable images for clients that include Coke, Pepsi, Sony, Miller Brewing and Toshiba and has worked with many top agencies including McCann-Erickson, BBDO, Hill Holiday, Bates, and Hakuhodo.
