For Cody Bratt, the joy of photographing comes from both the narrative quality that the medium embodies and the magical creation of a unique artifact. Bratt treats each image as though it is a love letter to the world, inspired by the discovery of the things and moments around us that deteriorate and are reborn.
Introduced to photography by his father, a photoengraver, Bratt pursued image and narrative at the University of California, Berkeley where he received a Rhetoric degree. In 2015, Bratt was recognized by PDN for excellence in portrait photography.
Bratt is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and also works as a local in New York and Los Angeles.
