Brandon Herman Hub
I've featured a friend of mine, the photographer Brandon Herman, a couple of times on the site. I wanted to share a few photos from his show opening at envoy on Chrystie Street in New York this Friday at 6 pm.
Via envoy: "When Herman was younger, growing up in the suburbs of Northern California, what frightened and enticed him most was the idea of being kidnapped, taken away from all that he knew, given a new identity and being cared for in extravagant ways that afforded him a lifestyle he could only fantasize about. In his fantasy he found relief from a nagging fear, but he also realized that he was living with some level of delusion. He began to become lost in an endless cycle of back and forth between daydream and nightmare."

If you're in Los Angeles this weekend, I'd encourage you to stop by a photography show by our friend Brandon Herman.
The opening reception is on Saturday (the 8th) from 6-8 at the David Gallery in Culver City.
I've featured Brandon's work on the site before when he was showing in Brooklyn, and while they look good online, in person the saturated, oversized works literally glow.
The show runs through October 13 if you can't make it this weekend.
My friend Brandon Herman is about to have his first solo exhibition, entitled "Schooldayz", at Wessel + O'Connor Fine Art in Brooklyn. Somewhere between portraits and film stills, his photographs take an interior fantasy world that is both meditative and intensely sexual, and play it out over a super-saturated suburban stage. I'm a big fan.
If you're in the neighborhood, there's an opening reception January 11 (tomorrow), from 6-8 pm. The gallery is located at 111 Front Street, Suite 200, DUMBO, Brooklyn. The show runs through February 24th. You can also visit Brandon's website, however, be aware that some of the shots are NSFW. A few more photos after the jump.
