Brandy Eve Allen is based in Los Angeles, CA.
Grew up in NYC/LA, spent 3 years living in Italy and is self-taught.
Exclusively shot on film.
A series of multiple exposures photographed with 35mm film where sometimes a single image consists of up to seven exposures. The subject matter sways between Three myths "Catch that divine spark", "Sinking into a dream" and “Nature becomes”. A meditation, surrendering, an exhaustion, contradicted by the powerful and tireless wearing naked strength, ready for battle. The explosiveness within life and ourselves met by the quiet deep where nothing can be heard. There is a search to root oneself when there have been no roots.
Using materials to create temporary sculptures that last all but seconds whilst capturing them in a state of permanence. Living in a plastic world, reconciling that which doesn’t belong until it becomes a poetic piece of the environment. Incorporating movement and the elements, manipulating nature and the artificial, these are portraits of a feeling.

Disclaimer: This is some of my work, a lot of it, but only a small portion of it. I have many projects which are not primary photographic based - I don't know how to properly present them on this platform, so they are with me. You're welcome to request a personal viewing.
