Brendan Hoffman (b. 1980, Albany, NY, USA) is a documentary photographer based in Kyiv, Ukraine, where his work reflects his interest in themes of nationalism, identity, history, politics, and the environment. His recent focus has been on Ukraine and the war in the country’s east, which he has covered for The New York Times, Newsweek, Getty Images, and others. Before that he documented the 2013-14 Maidan protests in Kyiv. His book-length project “The Beating of the Heart” is an exploration of contemporary middle class America in the context of free trade, the decline of blue-collar jobs, and economic and political polarization through the lens of a small town in Iowa. From 2007 to 2013, he was based in Washington, DC, and frequently worked on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Brendan’s work has been recognized by Sony, the Alexia Foundation, NPPA Best of Photojournalism, Pictures of the Year Interna-tional, American Photography 29, the White House News Photographers Associa-tion, and other organizations. He has worked in a variety of countries for both editorial and NGO clients, and is a co-founder of the photography collective Prime.
