For my Man Crush Monday, I’m choosing Benjamin Rasmussin. Based out of Denver, CO, Rasmussen spends his days currently freelancing for the big dogs such as Businessweek, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

Aside from being a POYi of 2010 award winner, Rasmussen seems to very lucidly translate what he sees in his head to the resulting photo with ease; something that many photographers, including myself, struggle with. He incorporates a sort of unique symmetry along with a very muted color palette to make the actual message he wants to convey stand out, and it’s absolutely working.
