JOSH BRANDAO / photographer

          Josh is a London based photographer and filmmaker with a great passion for story telling.
          He has studied for 4 years at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design , where he got a degree in Designing for Performance after specialising in Moving Image and Photography.
His interest for the very performative and theatrical aspects of Fashion led him to do a Masters degree in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion.
          Josh's work is often described as cinematic and theatrical. He is constantly developing concepts and experimenting with his artistic vision.
          The above is directly from his website. There is a lot of his work that I don't especially relate to, other than to say that he is really into some interesting and bizarre (to me) imagery. Don't get me wrong, some of it is great. It just doesn't fit with my criteria for of this blog. This particularly series, however, did speak to me and I offer it for you to decide. I like the contrasts in light and shadow as well as the use of props. The series is in muted color, but I think it would work very well in black and white.
