Rite of Passage.

This is Ben. Ben has just obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis on Journalism. This was no easy road, and one which has taken him from New Mexico to Baghdad and back.

Two moments in Ben’s life are captured here on film; the night he hung and opened his BFA show amongst family and friends and the quite hours proceeding a well earned commencement ceremony for the NMSU graduating class of 2009.

Ben’s time in Las Cruces, New Mexico has come to a close, and he will head north to shop his portfolio in the Front Range of Colorado and begin the next chapter in life. A great personality, staunch work ethic and a diverse and ever evolving portfolio will be the key to his continued success!

….. and so we each set out on our own road!

Ben Shockley’s BFA Exhibition, titled Fallibility, opened at the Milagro Coffee House on Friday, December 11.

Ben recently launched his own website: BenJShockley.com
