Ben Kerman writes, “I am a 21 year resident of Watertown, Massachusetts, and have been an Emergency Physician at Mount Auburn, Boston City, and Carney Hospitals. I am the father of three adopted children, now teenagers, and hope I will survive their adolescence. I was an amateur pilot, still am an avid tennis player, and love poetry.|
I feel that I was born to travel the world and become attached to places like people. I inherited an artist’s soul from my mother and wanderlust from my father. Photography is something I’ve had an affinity for since getting my first camera as a young boy. Only in the past five years have I come to realize taking pictures is a way to express feelings and convey my love of the world around me.
Born in Denmark, I was raised in the Boston area and New Mexico, lived in Paris, Mexico City, Seattle, San Francisco and a few other places for different periods of time growing up. At age 12, I spent a summer riding horses and camping in what was back then (1968) the wilderness of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and fell in love with all things alpine. As an Emergency Physician, I have worked for Native American tribes in Alaska, Idaho, and Western Washington State and once again fell in love with the damp green spectacular country of the Pacific Northwest. I have set foot in every state of the union but Arkansas and North Dakota (go figure).
I have visited Iceland, Ethiopia, New Zealand, and Australia. Life has presented me with many blessings, for which I am deeply grateful. Through photography, I am able to share these blessings with others. If my luck holds out, I’ve got many more people and places to visit and photos to take.”
