Bryan Banducci (b. 1989)

Born and raised in the SF Bay Area, currently based in Brooklyn.

My work relates to documentation, immediacy and nostalgia. I'm interested in long form stories, athleticism, light and shadows.

I attended San Francisco State University and Studio Arts Center International (Firenze), where I studied photography & journalism.

I like racing bicycles, skateboarding, hiking, camping, eating burritos and exploring new landscapes. Also golden retrievers.

Words and pictures from a story about the rise of the commuter bike in a (hopefully soon) post pandemic world, for @bloomberggreen.Recently worked on a fun photo essay / typology on commuter bicycles for @bloomberggreen. Got to ride around Brooklyn and shoot some friends both new and old. Many thanks to @joshpetri for tapping me for this, and @eugene_reznik and Thomas Houston for their help. 
If there’s one thing a global pandemic has been good for, its seeing more people riding bikes outside. Remember a few months ago when there were no cars in Manhattan??Summer field trip 🚵🏕🏊‍♂️Notes from the quar“At Home” for @nytimes 
I don’t really ride or train indoors anymore but riding the rollers is still fun and challenging. Thanks to @lauraoneillnyc for the call. In print yesterday. 
Shout out to anyone trying to come out of quarantine as a brick shithouse. 🧱Archive dig for “feeling of being free” 
35mm from a camera pulled out of a jersey pocket probably in the Presidio on the way back from a sunny ride in the headlands in 2012 or so.Places on Earth (California)Earlier this week I pitched a story about bicycle grocery delivery workers and their rising demand in NYC. The next morning I met Renel from Harlem and went on a delivery run with him from Whole Foods on Bowery. Later in the day I met workers from app based delivery services like Caviar as well as restaurant owners who are being forced to make their own deliveries as workers are staying home to keep their families safe. We’re living through some wild times here in NYC and it was crazy to be out on a bike (at a safe distance!) interacting with people who are so often overlooked.

Proud to have my first assignment for @nytimes properly taking me back to my roots in photojournalism. Huge thanks to @andrewhinderaker for taking a chance on my pitch and introducing me to the writers of this story (online now on the front page - live updates). A brief note to all my photo friends and peers struggling to come to terms with this new landscape we currently find ourselves in: while there is no better feeling than receiving a call from an editor out of the blue to shoot a unexpected commission, I strongly urge people to think critically and pitch stories, constantly. Editors are struggling just as much as we are to come up with original ideas and it’s our job to continue to make the best work we can. We’re all in this together. ❤️
