Ben Hopper: “After changing my sex 3.5 times, meditating for 7 months in the pyramids of Egypt, mastering the stop motion techniques of Jan Švankmajer, running 6.4 marathons in the woods of Mali and having sex with the queen…I am now, very proud to bring you – my 2nd black and white photo exhibition.”
