My best friend since I was in elementary school came from Charleston to explore Southern California with me.

Posted by Kendrick Brinson on May 23, 2015 in Lifestyle, Personal Work, Portraits | No Comments

I love California. I moved here about a year and a half ago and have explored all over–deserts, forests, beaches. The diverse landscapes have been so visually inspiring to me. (If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen David’s and my #westcoastexplorersclub posts, I’m sure. It’s pretty obvious that we really love our new home.) […]

Back to Sun City, Again

Self-publishing a limited edition book on my years spent photographing the residents of Sun City, Arizona didn’t stop me from returning last December for a German publication, or this month for myself. Now that I’m based in California, I can wake up in LA and make it to Sun City by sunset. It’s the place […]

You get wrapped up in all the tiny dramas of life and then you stand under a 2,500-year-old 200 foot sequoia tree and are reminded that you are just a beautiful microscopic blip in the grand scheme of things. You head home three days later knowing there are far more stars than you’d ever seen […]
