Having a darkroom in his childhood home didn’t hurt. Surrounded by photography from an early age, award-winning photographer Brandon Schulman’s love for the photographic process comes from a lifelong respect for passionate craftsmanship, timeless storytelling, and how a subject’s identity and environment inform its narrative.

Brandon’s work includes the landscape series “A Portrait of America Left Behind,” the portraiture series “String Theory” and collaborations with a range of advertising, fashion, corporate and publishing clients. His current series, “Project Handmade,” uses motion and stills to document artisans in their studios as they craft one-of-a- kind objects.

Brandon splits his time between Brooklyn and the Catskills, where he shares a mountain farmstead with his wife, Japanese photographer and foodist Chiaki Hara.
