Brandon English is a New York based visual artist interested in contemporary abolitionist practices and how they intersect with vestiges of vernacular image making. Through the lens of democratized imaging technologies (cellphones, DSLRs, surveillance cameras etc.), he aims to render issues of race, identity and political/social discourse with an exactitude concentrated on his proprietary experiences/traumas rather than image fidelity. Having worked as a photo-journalist for nearly a decade in Atlanta, Georgia, he currently finds himself shedding his once normative journalistic practices in search of a more personal and abolitionist discipline both in the streets as well as the studio.
