Born and raised in London, Nick Brandt studied Film and Painting at St. Martins School of Art.

He started photographing in December 2000 in East Africa, beginning the body of work that is his signature subject matter and style. He no longer directs, devoting himself full time to his fine art photography now.

He has had numerous one-man exhibitions between 2004 and 2006, including London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Hamburg, Santa Fe, Sydney, Melbourne and San Francisco. He now lives in Topanga, California.

I had previously mentioned Nick Brandt for his MJ video, but I had no idea he quit directing. The first picture above is from his latest series, while the other one from a previous project. His work is, undoubtedly, beyond breathtaking.
