Jason Brown was born in Elliot Lake, Ontario in 1974. He has studied photography at Ryerson University in Toronto and holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree with a Concentration in History from Carleton University in Ottawa.
For many people, large parts of where they live have become invisible – expanses to be negotiated between destinations, but not looked at. As a photographer and artist, Jason’s work is largely concentrated on this idea. His work looks at the transitional nature of our built environment with a focus on the nominal subjects in our environment – the common places that we move through, but tend not to notice, on our way to somewhere else.
Appreciative of the fact that it often takes the passage of time before an image of a commonplace subject can be truly assessed, as a photographer and artist, Jason’s intention is to see beyond the moment – beyond the everydayness of life that often gets in the way of our ability to appreciate the ephemeral.
