Artwork by Arthur Keller
The French phrase "il fault cultiver notre jardin", meaning "one must cultivate the garden," signifies the importance of enriching one's mind. Inspiration is a major part of creativity, as forward-thinking leaders will attest. Understanding this, The Benjamin’s corridors feature Swiss-French model turned photographer, Arthur Keller’s first privately commissioned collection. 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.
