Brian Wertheim, born in Los Angeles, California in 1989, is a photographer and filmmaker focusing on long-term work in Southern California and the Middle East. He remains committed to the use of photographic film and develops all of his negatives using traditional darkroom techniques. 

Wertheim spent his formative years in a small New England town but his photographs are set in some of the largest urban areas on Earth. Antithetical themes are characteristic of his work where he explores mankind’s ability to endure unusual and difficult circumstances. He is motivated by a love for urban areas and the comings and goings of city life. Despite often being confronted with the struggles inherent in the human story, his work has led him to hold a fundamentally optimistic worldview and this remains the driving force that compels him to his subjects.  

Wertheim lives in Los Angeles with his wife.
