'Fascination'

A fascination with people and the way they live their lives is what drives me.

The uncertainty, constant challenges, the true joy of capturing that split-second moment, along with the consideration of light,

texture and elements all perfectly in place is why I dive into the 'fascination' wherever I am with my camera.

As seen on my mom's fridge

Hi, I'm Brandon, a Seoul-born, Melbourne-based street & documentary photographer.
After studying and working in the architecture and graphic design field 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 —for a split second— turn an ordinary scene into something unique and not reproducible.
