The Fader Interviews Alum Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.

Monday, Nov 14, 2016

Photography & Imaging graduate Elliott Brown Jr. (BFA '16) was recently interviewed by The Fader for its Culture & Photography section. The interview revolves around Brown Jr.'s inspiration, identity, and exploration of the limits of the body. Sola Akiniana writes for The Fader

Brown’s work is striking for his daring use of setting and color. And just as his bedroom conveys something about who he is privately, Brown strives to capture the essence of his subjects by placing them in the spaces where they’re most comfortable, and then adding a little of the unexpected. His work digs into identity, exploring the tension between the public and private self.
