Rising photographers born into a family of considerable means and influence have received quite a bit of hate from social media, and often times without reason. No one truly knows what someone such as Brooklyn Beckham has gone through to get where he is. Perhaps his way up was just as complicated as anyone. Perhaps it was not, and he’s lucky to have the background and family he does. It doesn’t change the fact that his work is far from terrible and, as the follower video shows, that is just like all of us, a passionate photographer.
GQ recently created a short 2-minute long documentary on how Brooklyn Beckham became the ACE photographer he is now. While one could guess it’s all about his family, how it could have influenced his current work, it’s actually far from it. If you look at the video above without knowing who David Beckham is, you’d probably imagine that Brooklyn Beckham is just another young and talented photographer who’s made it.
What I found interesting is hearing about the new generation of photographers. While a few years ago, the new growing community was made of more and more photographers that started with digital and not analog cameras, nowadays people like Beckham started with their phone before having the opportunity of getting a camera.
