Benjamin Rasmussen grew up in a family of missionaries in rural Philippines and questions of home, community, and identity were endemic to his childhood experience. These human connections have continued to drive his photographic practice. In Down Hernani Shores, Rasmussen documents the destruction and rebuilding of the town of Hernani, Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. Combining portraiture and landscape work, along with drawings by the town’s children, he reveals the effects of the typhoon on the residents’ lives and livelihoods. By the Olive Trees, a collaborative work with Michael Friberg self-published in newspaper format, presents the olive tree as a marker of permanence in a place defined by its tenuousness—the Zaatari Syrian refugee camp in Jordan.
