Ben Wilhelmi, arusha Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement Born in 1969, Belgian, I've been living in Arusha, Tanzania, since 1999. working as professional pilot. I started there as a volunteer pilot for Flying Medical Service, a humanitarian NGO, for three years. i've been flying for the tourism industry after that.
Tanzania provides many opportunities to fulfill a passion for photography including aerials. I've been using mainly conventional equipment as Leica M and old Nikon F bodies but recently joined the digital world, still with Nikon. Leica M digital soon I hope...
A photo editing software is just used to reframe pictures and to work on contrast and luminosity... The idea is to represent faithfully the facts as they happen.
I had my 1st Exhibition, "Tanzania ...Aerial Perspective" at Arusha Coffee Lodge, in Arusha from 6th to 9th December 2008.
