I first saw British photographer Nick Brandt’s work last May at the PhotoLondon festival where he showed work from his Inherit the Dust series. I couldn’t get his stunning, large-scale images out of my mind.

In  early February I saw his impressive work again at World Photo Organisation‘s PhotoFairs in San Francisco and was lucky enough to have the opportunity to write about him recently for LensCulture.
