Benjamin Von Wong at the intersection of fantasy and photography

My guest is Canadian artist Benjamin Von Wong. He is a photographer, a marketing genius, an artist and much more.  On his website he describes himself as an “Artist focused on amplifying positive Impact.”

Benjamin Von Wong's work lies at the intersection of fantasy and photography and combines everyday objects with shocking statistics. It has attracted the attention of corporations, like Starbucks, Dell, and Nike and has generated over 100 million views for causes like ocean plastics, electronic waste, and fashion pollution. Most recently, he was named one of Adweek's 11 content branded masterminds.  And he is also the host of the Impact Everywhere Podcast.

Listen closely, as you are about to take a deep dive into the mind and career of a brilliant creator.
