Photographer Brjánn Batista Bettencourt


This image is from my series titled "Apartment Sessions" where I spend a prolonged period of time with someone hanging out in an apartment, in an attempt to capture mindsets and perspectives that reflect my coming of age experiences as a teenager. The series is both an exploration of my own teenage feelings and their meanings, but also an attempt for my subject to channel the essence of a person they've never met in hopes to create an authentic connection with me as I photograph them.

Brjánn Batista Bettencourt is a documentary photographer based in Toronto, Canada.


This image is from my series "Saudade", which is an attempt to discover myself through traces of the past within my father's childhood home in Portugal. This image is of my father's childhood bedroom taken on my second visit to Portugal in 2018.

Having worked as a photojournalist for 5 years, Brjánn now focused on personal documentary projects that reflect his personal geographies and his desire to re-capture essences of nostalgia from his teenage years.
