A Day With Brandon Shigeta

A DAY WITH
Brandon Shigeta
Designer & Photographer

A Harvard-educated architect by trade, it was however his interest in A Bathing Ape and his Japanese heritage that brought him to Tokyo where he became immersed in the world of streetwear and street art. Since then, Shigeta has emerged as both a talented photographer and designer, helping apply a finer level of execution and insight through his architectural lens. An integral part of HYPEBEAST’s photographic presence in Los Angeles, here’s A Day With Brandon Shigeta.
