Ben and Brenda

A heaven couple, whose combined talents create a crazy amount of creativity. Ben Briand, an award winning film director and Brenda Harvey who designs accessories for her label Benah, fittingly complete our “artist & muse” week.

Brenda Harvey shot by Ben Briand

An intimate film by Ben of a conversation he has with Brenda about how their individual inspirations affect on the other’s creative process. A very personal look into their artistic relationship.

Benah, is a high end fashion brand with a focus on understated accessories. Drawing on a nomadic upbringing, collecting objects here and there and a love for subtle luxury items with a past history. Benah is her long term passion project realised by Brenda.

Ben is a creator of films, commercials, music videos and video installations. Recently, the Cannes Young Director Award winner completed three short films back to back, ‘Apricot’, ‘Castor & Pollux’ and ‘Some Static Started’. This trilogy explores Briand’s favourite themes of memory and identity. With a background in fine arts, he possesses the ability to form delicately crafted visual images whilst also generating honest human warmth from his characters. (Oh yes and he’s the brother of recently posted, equally gifted, Nic Briand)
