David Brandy

David Brandy’s photographs investigate, “The Uncanny” (Das Unheimliche) – a concept rooted in the subject of aesthetics, where aesthetics is understood to mean not merely the theory of beauty, but the theory of the qualities of feeling. Imagine an instance where a photo can be seen, and felt, as both familiar yet alien at the same time. That's the Uncanny – locating the strangeness in the ordinary.

Brandy began his creative career with a BA in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University. His practice has evolved from radio copywriter to Founder and Creative Director of a marketing events agency to photographic storyteller.

He was a finalist in both the Quest Art 2018 TD Wealth | Thor Wealth Management Group National Art Prize and the 2017 Salt Spring National Art Prize. He was invited to exhibit in Scarborough Arts' booth at the 2018 Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. His work was juried into both the “2018 RMG Exposed” and the “2018 SNAP for ACT” fine art photography auctions.
