“Lonersong Scrapbook” by Photographer Brendan George Ko

Based between Toronto and Maui, Brendan George Ko (previously featured here) describes himself as a “document-based storyteller.” At the end of each year since 2014, Ko has put together a virtual scrapbook capturing the essence of the year in a collection of images and videos. His latest scrapbook, “lonersong,” is a quiet and atmospheric ode to the people, places, animals, and plants of his 2021 experience. “Like the stories I heard countless times growing up in Gallup, New Mexico, it isn’t about truth, nor is it about accuracy – it is about carrying the spirit of the memory,” Ko explains. “My photographs aren’t about realism and precision, it is about manipulating the medium in order to summon the spirits captured within.”
