Famed Gay LA Photographer Brian Putnam has passed after committing suicide over the holidays. Putnam was found in his apartment in West Hollywood. We remember Brian's kind smile fondly & he will be missed by everyone who knew him as we did.
A message from his sister:
"On Dec 23rd, my Dad and I were contacted by an LA police detective notifying us of his apparent suicide in West Hollywood. My Dad and I struggled for the past 15 months trying to help Brian fight his battle with alcohol and depression. I was able to pick up his car and personal items this past Thursday. I am so sad that he had isolated himself from family and friends and died alone when it didn't have to be."
May he Rest In Peace
