Will to Power Inlaga Tankoubon
Brandels’ artistic practice is an exploration on the photo novel as a discipline. His work reflects on fact and fiction as well as the political aspects of the individual within the collective. The storytelling is built upon a collection of inspiration from popular cultural references such as comics, movies and video games. Based on this, he writes and stages photographic series to portray his different stories.
