Kendrick Brinson’s portraiture and documentary work explores the fabric of community through the connections, landscape and personality that makes these places unique. She has covered diverse subjects, including up-and-coming rappers in Atlanta, retirees in an age-restricted community in Arizona,
and the residents of her father’s rural hometown. Her various clients include the New York Times, National Geographic, and Apple.
Brinson grew up in Columbia, South Carolina and graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in newspaper writing, but shifted to photography when she used a camera during her first photojournalism course and immediately witnessed her world expand through the lens. She lives in Atlanta with her husband, photographer David Walter Banks.
