Rachel Louise Brown Biography

In Rachel Louise Brown’s photographs the landscape becomes a cinematic stage in which she investigates a psychological reaction to unfamiliar territory. Experiencing a mixture of fear and curiosity Brown explores and visualizes the unknown alone. Memories embedded through cinema, literature and imagination manifest in the photographs that emerge.
