There is no need for introductions. You all know who Brandon is, what he does and what he has achieved. But what you might not know about him is that he loves film photography.

He has got two cameras: an Olympus OM-1 and a Canon AE-1. They are both an essential for his travels.

“Through the Dark” is a photogallery about Brandon Semenuk’s adventures captured on photographic film.

"I was crashing at a friends house during a riding trip and while everyone was drinking beer and being roaches, I found myself constantly playing with this little film camera on the table to subside my A.D.D.
