Constructed as recontextualized moments in ongoing narratives, Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.'s work functions as both a document and abstraction of daily life. He is interested in the limitations of photography, specifically what is excluded from what is included in the image; what information is compromised, and to what effect, in the distance between the image and the viewer?

As the pictured individuals identities are often obscured, his images are less concerned with representing any one person as it is the theoretical implications of power and access. Moving the imaged person between a series of occlusions and reveals, he leaves space for the individual to withstand the viewers categorization in order to maintain that the imaged person belongs to themselves.
