Born and raised in Cape Town, Jody Brand studied History and Media at UCT with the intention of becoming a journalist. It was out of an unrelenting desire to make things that she started styling her friends and doing shoots for fun. “Somehow,” she says, “I then began assisting the legendary Richard

de Jager and it occurred to me that I wanted more ownership of my images as an art director.” This is how Jody’s focus shifted to finding her expression in her current medium of photography. Predominantly photographing her friends, Jody’s pictures offer a raw and unflinching look into South Africa’s youth culture. Jody Brand
