Born and raised in London, Nick Brandt studied at St. Martin, where he acquired a solid foundation in cinema and painting. After looking at pictures from his portfolio, it is easy to understand and envy his natural ability to capture Africa in an almost iconic way.
His journey through the African continent started in December of 2000, his product showing what would become his visual signature and his style in works of this kind. Although he is no longer solely dedicated to photography, he has done a lot of work and has put together several individual exhibitions, and a book with his work has already been published.
He has captivated me with his serene, almost heavenly, look at the African jungle and its animals. With carefully tought out compositions and unusual aesthetics, it is impossible not to want to get to know more about the African continent and its wild life.
