    For Ben Hartley, his oil painting background has provided a tremendous advantage to being a photographer. “My oil paintings were figure paintings; on top of it, they were photorealistic figure paintings. In order to make a really great painting, I had to take a really great photo because I based all of my work off of photographs. That’s really how my photography blossomed. I’ve always been fascinated with people. People are the most interesting things… the most important things on this world. To paint anything else but a person, I’ve always struggled with. I feel like photographing anything else besides a person is a struggle, too. I think that people in general – the connections we have – inspires me to keep taking pictures,” said Hartley, 28, who graduated from BGSU in 2009 with a BFA in 2-Dimensional Studies.
