Photographer Ben Marcin looks for the absurd in the average – and he usually finds it. This attention to detail transforms Marcin’s day to day wanderings into a scavenger hunt for visual gems.

Ben writes:

My color photographs seek out the odd within the ordinary, the colorful alongside the everyday. Whether on a mountaintop in Montenegro or in an alley back home in Baltimore, my camera is constantly straddling that mysterious zone between the real and the surreal.
