Statement

Born in 1974. A former BBC journalist and modern history graduate from Edinburgh University, Ben McMillan moved to Beijing from London in late 2004.

He began his photography career documneting urban and social change and was immediately drawn in by the epic transformation of the capital.

On assignments in Beijing and around China Ben combined a passion for shooting landscape and architecture with a natural empathy for the workers responsible for China’s seismic transformation. His works bear witness to the colossal scale of urbanization across the mainland, incorporating portraiture and reportage as well as his established talent for the physical environment.

Ben's editorial credits range from the National Geographic to Vanity Fair, while he has been exhibited in London in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s China Now exhibition. Earlier this year he was a finalist in the 2009 Sovereign Asia Art Prize., based in Hong Kong.
