BRANDON

Do you live in Boston? Sort of. I’m from Atlanta, but I was born here, so I go back and forth.

Are you back for good or just passing through? I’ve been here for a few months, just chillin’ out and working on some projects.

Are you an artist? Photographer.

What kind of stuff do you shoot? I shoot film. I use a Contax T2, an older film camera.

I meant do you shoot people or places? I really don’t know how to explain it honestly, so I’ll show you.

Your Instagram is @eathumans! 

Do you have any style icons? The coolest person I can think of is Shia Lebeouf.

How would you describe your style? I dunno, it depends on the day. My influences kind of vary.

What’s going on today? I’m a mix. I really like punk stuff, but I also like comfy stuff.

Did your neck tattoo hurt? Does everyone ask you that? Yeah, they do. It hurt, but it wasn’t as bad as you’d think.

I guess that’s because there’s no bone there. Do you have a lot of tattoos? I only have one other one. My friend did this one.

For your second tattoo you went big! Any place you like to shop or hang out in Boston? I like to thrift mostly, I like Urban Renewal.

Have you ever been to Vivant Vintage in Allston? Yeah! I just went there like two days ago! I bought some old Playboys. They have some Red Wings that I want to go back and buy. That spot’s cool and the Garmet District is cool. I’m friends with the people at Bodega, so I go there sometimes too.
