Cody Bratt was born and currently resides in San Francisco. He holds a Rhetoric degree with an emphasis in narrative and image from University of California, Berkeley. A fourth generation photographic artist, his work spans several genres (landscape, portraits, experimental) and formats across both film and digital.
He is a four time invite only Phoot Camp attendee, a two time winner of PDN Faces competition (2015, 2016), a LensCulture 2016 emerging photographer and a recent finalist for 2016 FOCUS photo l.a. His work has been exhibited in New York City, Berlin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago. He'll be releasing his first monograph, Love We Leave Behind, with Fraction Editions in Fall 2017.
Cody’s work often focuses on themes of memory, emotion, identity and place utilizing both documentary and fictionalized narrative approaches. By blending these themes and approaches, he hopes to open ambiguity in the realness of the narrative to let the viewer inhabit the images.
