About Nick Brandt
Born and raised in London, Nick Brandt studied Film and Painting at St. Martins School of Art. He moved to America in 1992, where he directed award-winning music videos for the likes of Michael Jackson ("Earth Song," "Stranger in Moscow"), Moby, Badly Drawn Boy, and Jewel. He started photographing in December 2000 in East Africa, beginning the body of work that is his signature subject matter and style. He no longer directs, devoting himself full time to his fine art photography now. Brandt's first book of photographs, "On This Earth", was published in October 2005, by Chronicle Books, with forewords by Jane Goodall and ALice Sebold (author of "The Lovely Bones").
