String Theory is a personal project that Schulman started in 2007, creating environmental portraits of the world’s most eminent theoretical physicists. Shulman started the project with Nobel Laureate David Gross in Santa Barbara and ended the venture with Bernard Julia at l’Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, covering 22 physicists and three Nobel Laureates.

Having a darkroom in his childhood home didn’t hurt. Surrounded by photography from an early age, award-winning photographer Brandon Schulman’s love for the photographic process comes from a lifelong respect for passionate craftsmanship, timeless storytelling, and how a subject’s identities and environments inform its narrative.

Brandon’s work includes the landscape series “A Portrait of America Left Behind,” the portraiture series “String Theory” and collaborations with a range of advertising, fashion, corporate and publishing clients. His current series, “Project Handmade,” uses motion and stills to document artisans in their studios as they craft one-of-a-kind objects.

Brandon splits his time between Brooklyn and the Catskills, where he shares a mountain farmstead with his wife, Japanese photographer and foodist Chiaki Hara. Brandon graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography with a focus on advertising and has earned international honors such as a Hearst Biennial, a Px3 and a Pollux Award.
