Photographer and movie maker Henry Thong made this episode for his documentary series Makers Who Inspire about the life and work of photographer Ben Baker. Over the years, Baker has pointed his camera at some of the most powerful people in the world.

Baker is a portrait photographer based in New York City who has spent the last 15 years focusing his work on people of power, or as Baker puts it, “people who effectively run the world.”

“Through his work with Time Magazine, Fortune, Politico, and The Sunday Times, Ben has photographed media moguls such as Rupert Murdoch,

celebrities the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Hugh Jackman, visionary innovators like Elon Musk, and political heavyweights including Michael Bloomberg, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama,” Thong writes.
