The Lament, Hardback Book

The Lament Hardback



The Lament continues Benge's investigation into the nature of things through a celebration of the democracy of images.

Questions are asked though few answers given. These are places we have all been, if only in the mind.

The Lament is partly fiction and partly autobiographical.

The pictures mine the unusual and the perverse. They make strange connections and exploit the unexpected.

Nothing is as it seems, though we nevertheless sense that there is a truth in everything.

Mystery prevails and it is up to the viewer to bring his or her own life experience to the reading of the work.
