As seen on my mom's fridge

Hi, I'm Brandon, a Seoul-born, Melbourne-based street & documentary photographer.


After studying and working in architecture and graphic design for many years, I finally quit in 2017 to focus exclusively on photography.

 

Being reliant on my small camera and patience, I have since then roamed the streets in the world looking for those fleeting events that turn an ordinary scene into something unique!
