David Brandy began his creative career with a BA in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University.
His practice has evolved since then from radio copywriter and producer, to Founder and Creative Director of a marketing events agency, to photographic storyteller.
Brandy’s photographs capture transient moments that reveal objects or places that are altered or detached from their natural function or place. He seeks out scenes that emphasize a strong sense of absence or isolation; images that evoke questions pertaining to the person(s) who are, or, who are not there or to what has just transpired or to what is about to transpire. Within these scenes Brandy is inspired to seek out a splendour we seldom notice; revealing that beauty can be strange — and the strange can be beautiful.
