Brian Albert Cameron "Vespertine" Ziff[1] (pronounced VES-PUR-TEEN), born September 13, 1986, is a singer-songwriter, musician and photographer. He used to take most of the photos of Kerli. On April 27, 2012, he released an album called The End of the World Suite.

Ziff uses a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with "a lot of extremely expensive lenses" while incorporating image manipulation (i.e. Photoshop).[2]

Relationship with Kerli[edit | edit source]

When asked, Kerli described their relationship:

We're friends with benefits. The benefits being - He takes my pictures and I cook for him.[3]

In 2016, in the interview Kerli did with PopCrush (here), the introduction says "before turning to her boyfriend, Brian, to talk about the music". However, this does not confirm they are together due to the fact that it is based on someone's mere conclusion rather then proven by Kerli or Brian.[4]

In a podcast, Brian revealed that his ex was "the most famous person in her country" and that they had been together for 9 years.[5] Kerli's book Haavatud jumalanna paranemispäevik says she was with a man she loved for 7 years, and "wounded [her] for another 2 years while [she] was already debilitated".
