Inspiration is a major part of creativity, as forward-thinking leaders will attest. Understanding this, The Benjamin curates intriguing experiences, believing that its guests deserve more than just a place to stay while traveling.
Swiss-French model turned photographer, Arthur Keller’s first privately commissioned photography collection is displayed throughout the hotel's corridors. Keller, who has been a mentee of the renowned Vogue and Vanity Fair fashion Photographer Mario Testino, applied his stylized eye to a different muse---New York City. For The Benjamin’s collection, he wanted to visually articulate the energy and invincibility one feels when visiting the city.
