General

Hi there! I’m Ben, or Kartenhouse—a creative guy based in Munich, Germany. Learn more about me below:

Q&A

Q: Who are you?
A: I’m a creative guy who’s mostly active as a photographer, musician, and graphic designer. I grew up in a small town called Miesbach and nowadays I live in Munich. I’m an enthusiast for the arts, an entrepreneur with more ideas than time, and an explorer of social change.

Q: What makes you want to create?
A: The buzzing and active nature of cities, and the people who populate them, have always been something that deeply fascinated me. I get inspired by details that are invisible to the naked eye, by stories told with passion, and by the people who tell them.

Q: What’s your goal with what you do?
A: Through my art, I express this fascination for people, for the city, for nature, and for the abstract. If there’s one thing I strive for, it’s for the world to become a more social, honest, and just place. A place where strangers talk to each other on the streets, and one where diversity is lived and appreciated.

Q: Where can I buy your art?
A: You can buy limited edition signed prints on request. Per picture, I sell 3 signed prints with custom measurements and materials. I’ll get get back to you with specific pricing information.
You can also buy my art on Society6 and some stock photography on Adobe Stock.

Q: I need creative support for my project and/or a photographer/DJ for my event. Can you help me?
A: Yes, you can book me for your project or event. I’m looking forward to working with you!

Q: I want to improve my own photography or music skills. Can you help me with that?
A: Yes, I’m teaching individualized private courses based on your current level of skill.
