SHAUN BEHRENT

Barista
New York City

Shaun Behrent
“I complained too much in my early twenties.”

Surrounded by the splendor and spoils of New York City, dissatisfaction can become all-consuming. While we may strive for something bigger and “better,” we have to remember to find fulfillment in what we do daily, lest we want to go completely insane.
Shaun Behrent–a twenty-seven year-old Massachusetts native currently settled in Williamsburg, Brooklyn–loves coffee. It doesn't consume his life, it isn't the endgame of his existence, but it does occupy his days as a barista and head coffee tech for Joe–a coffee chain whose tagline is, fittingly, “the art of coffee.”
Photography–indeed creation on the whole: Shaun also illustrates, writes, and “[attempts] to pick up modeling gigs”–provides a prism for capturing glimpses of the serendipity Shaun has experienced in the four years since he set up roots in New York, interacting with a large, varied cast of characters from his perch behind the bar.“My photos and illustrations are on the walls of the coffee shop I work at most, and are now in the hands of a number of people. It's a really humbling feeling getting interest in my work every few weeks.” If you need a soundtrack to Shaun's photos, he suggests you listen to East Village Radio staple Chances With Wolves (streamable every Sunday from 12AM EST – 2AM EST at http:// www.eastvillageradio.com/)
