Read Brandon Maxwell’s statement below (made on Instagram):
I’m so excited to be releasing our Fall/Winter 2016 campaign video and imagery over the course of this week! This project, which was photographed by me, is a very personal and full circle moment. I grew up wanting to make fashion photographs and spent almost every single weekend teaching myself to make clothes, doing my girlfriends’ hair and makeup, and staging photo shoots with disposable cameras anywhere we didn’t get kicked out. As I grew older, my love for making images slowly transitioned from being my hobby to being my identity. My passion for taking photographs kept me out of trouble, it gave me self confidence, it helped me find a focus and drive in my life, and it ultimately led me to pursue a college degree in photography, where I formed some of the most profound and creative friendships i’ve ever had. At a young age I dreamed what seemed at times like some very unrealistic dreams, but I always had faith that my life path could eventually lead me to making a living combining all the creative passions I truly loved if I pursued them with hard work, dedication, and honesty. I’m so incredibly grateful that it has. Nothing gives me as much pure joy than making clothes and photographing them, and I am so thankful to the loving team around me who supported my dreams and helped make this happen.
