Brendan Hoffman (b. Albany, NY, 1980) is a photographer based in Moscow, Russia. He began his career in 2007 after working at a desk for several years in the non-profit sector. He divides his time between client and personal work. He was until recently based in Washington, DC, where assignments often involved covering news and politics for publications such as TIME magazine or the New York Times. His personal projects reflect his interest in the ways in which economic and political structures shape modern society. His ongoing project “Stand the Middle Ground” is an exploration of contemporary middle class America in the context of free trade and the decline of manufacturing in a small Iowa town. Brendan has received awards for his photography from Pictures of the Year International and the White House News Photographers Association, among other organizations. In 2013 he attended Review Santa Fe. He has worked in a variety of countries for both editorial and NGO clients, and is a co-founder of the photography collective Prime.
