Brant is a Documentary Photographer and Visual Arts student at Coastal Carolina University. His photographic projects include Santee Coastal Reserve, Tobacco farming in Horry County, Carolina Gold Rice farming in Society Hill and most recently Francis Marion.
As a youth, Brant spent untold hours fishing, swimming and crabbing in St. Helena's Sound near Beaufort, South Carolina. Those early years instilled in him a life-long love of nature and the South Carolina Lowcountry. As he grew older, Brant discovered the importance of history and how it gives context to, and a deeper understanding of our current circumstances.
All of Brant's projects connect the viewer to a place and time. Through his visual interpretation of the natural world and mankind's relationship to it, Brant provides insight into today's complex society.
Brant's photography has been shown at the Colleton County Museum and Farmers Market in Walterboro, SC, the Contemporary South show in Raleigh, NC, the South Carolina Biennial in Columbia, SC and at Artfields in Lake City, SC. Most recently Brant was in a two person show at Southern Exposures in Pike County, GA.
