In the mid-1990's as a teenager, Brendan Kitto expanded from the activities of skating and graffiti to also documenting what he perceived as important youth culture. With age, this concept was further refined. His need to document process and happenings, capturing a time and place, became his point of difference in graffiti documentation, since most people at the time would only photograph the final result. This patience to capture THE shot in urban popular culture and fashion, has enabled him to exhibit his photos in both group and solo shows. With respect to the past and moving forward with the future, Brendan embraces medium format, 35mm and digital photography, with his own in-house black & white development dark room.
