Benson lives in New York and Florida with his wife, Gigi, who works with him on his exhibitions and books. Their two daughters live and work in Los Angeles.

Reviews

"Mr. Fischer kept a chessboard by his bed, right, just in case he had any ideas during the night."
Harry Benson, The New York Times "I got along with Bobby Fischer because I knew nothing about chess. Bobby thought anyone who knew about chess was a moron."
Harry Benson, Newsweek "Fischer was notorious for his abrasive manner, but Benson's pictures get beyond the antagonistic persona, beyond the antics. 'There was a softness I found in him, ' he reflects."
TIME LightBox "Benson's beautiful and evocative portraits help us recall the titan at his height."
Barnes and Noble Review
