Elliott Jerome Brown Jr. (b. 1993, New York) is a conceptual photographer working on ideas related to intimacy, vulnerability, and social perception. The resulting images, set within biographical, private, and public spaces, aim to capture a person in a place of presumed comfort, grounding the bizarre or glamorous into a moment that feels lived in; a gesture or pose that speaks to an experience and is less prepared; incorporating an element of ordinary as a way to value the person photographed through several stages of expression; to offset what it means to be respectable and dignified within a photograph.
