French-born and Brooklyn-based, Benjamin Løzninger is an art director, graphic designer, photographer, musician, video editor, sound engineer, illustrator, and multi-media artist. Trained at France’s prestigious École des Arts Décoratifs, Løzninger made his first video, a soaring sci-fi rock fantasy, at the tender age of 10. Now, as an artist and graphist, he helped launch Paris’s famous musical odyssey agency, Super! who produced the 2012 Pitchfork Paris festival. He is also an active touring musician and uses his world tours to experiment with photographic diary projects –  imbuing his travels with a signature paradox of melancholy and color. In 2011, he directed Elektrisk Gønner’s “Uknowhatiwant” music video which generated over 1 million views online and was featured on Syfy’s Lost Girl series. In 2013 Løzninger co-founded FrenchBK, a creative collective focused on innovations in the ever-blurring lines between the culture of digital storytelling and experimental brand experiences.

“A burning city. Thick smoke clouds fill the air with an intense smell. History always repeats itself: as at Nero’s times, a devastating fire run through the streets, through the buildings, threatening people’s life. Was it an arson or just an accident? The Smoke // Fire series is speaking about self-introspection through the discovery a new city, experimenting mystery, fascination, repulsion and sometimes fear.”
