Harry Benson
Lifetime Achievement
2017 ICP Infinity Awards

Harry Benson has been a witness to – and documenter of – more than six decades of life on earth. From movements and wars to rock stars and celebrities to presidents and queens, Harry Benson has seen – and shot – it all. Ever true to his humble Scottish roots, Harry Benson will tell you that his 65-year career in photography is not that big a deal. The likes of Queen Elizabeth II would disagree, honoring him with of Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2009. So would ICP, who honored him with its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017.
