As an award winning documentary filmmaker and still photographer, K Brown spends most of his time working with a non-profit organization in NC. Assignments have taken him across the United States as well as to over 25 countries.
Whether covering a medical team in the Kashmir Valley of India, abandoned babies being saved from the trash bins of Johannesburg, South Africa or a water purification team in tsunami ravaged Sri Lanka, his photography has been used to compel volunteers to become involved in various efforts and raise funds for charitable projects. For the last 20 years K. has had the rare opportunity to exercise his love of photography while providing food for the soul.
One of his continuing bodies of work began as a self-study in his hometown of Durham, NC – seeing the unobserved. “These are images we walk past every day; moments in time that we take for granted or fail to notice all together. These photographs represent the way I physically see. As a color-blind photographer, I see a world of contrast, light and shadow.”
“There are moments in the day when everything comes together. These typically occur in the early morning or late in the afternoon, when shadows lengthen and contrast is heightened. It’s during those times that my eyes are able to focus on images that many times go unobserved.”
