elliott jerome brown jr. (b. 1993) is a conceptual photographer working on ideas related to intimacy, domestic space, and marginality. constructed as recontextualized moments in ongoing narratives, his work functions as a documented 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? further, how can this distance conjure multiple realities for the image?
brown jr.’s work has been featured in exhibitions domestically and internationally. he was a participant in the skowhegan school of painting and sculpture (2017) and received his bfa in photography from the tisch school of the arts, new york university.
he is currently based in new orleans as an artist-in-resident at st. roch community church.
