Bio

 

 

Jason Brown is a fine art photographer based in Toronto. His work explores storytelling and hints at narratives found in our built environments and the nominal subjects in our surroundings.

Born in Elliot Lake, Ontario, Jason holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree with a concentration in History from Carleton University in Ottawa and he has studied photography at Ryerson University in Toronto.

Jason was selected as a Photolucida Critical Mass Finalist in 2012 and his work has been included in a number of distinguished juried art fundraisers including the AIDS Committee of Toronto’s SNAP! Auction, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery’s RMG Exposed Auction and the Art with Heart Auction for Casey House.

Jason is grateful for the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council.
