[B]randon Stanciell is a photographer we like. His portraits are challenging, beautiful and generating a much needed discourse regarding depictions of black men in the public eye – “We’re portrayed sometimes as “aggressive” and “thug” and that’s not always the case in many black communities. My concept for The Boys Who Loved Flowers is to portray a more sensitive side of black men. A side most people aren’t familiar with. The flowers help communicate a more calm setting and their bright colors bring the viewers attention to the subject”
We caught up with Brandon to ask why he likes flowers and what he plans to do next.
Follow him on Instagram @themanwholovedflowers, Twitter @valley_hoodlum, and his portfolio is here: heretakethese.us. Catch his show in Santa Monica on August 19th.
