Brandon Bernardo

Brandon is a recovering technology entrepreneur and the founder and publisher of El Socio. Always enamored with understanding the world from varying cultural perspectives, since November 2014 he has been living in Mexico, where he has become involved with criminal organizations, corrupt law enforcement, prostitutes, and drug users.

His work in Mexico is published in the Conflict section of El Socio, and he is writing a book titled ZONA and compiling a photobook and producing a documentary, both titled The Other Sideand both based on his travels in a place he now considers his 'second country.'

Brandon hopes that, through writing and photography, he will be able to illustrate and share the beauty in the tragedies of human existence. He hopes to be able to give voice to the voiceless, and live amongst them, on the edge of hope and despair.
