J Wesley Brown


J Wesley Brown is a fan of the night and of the solitary figure. I was less convinced by his portraits, some of which felt a little too staged for my liking, but I enjoyed the atmosphere of his nighttime images of urban or suburban landscapes. They have a strange sense of abandonment and unease, as if all human beings had just mysteriously vanished. They made me think of Gregory Crewdson if he hung around a bit more after dark, but I guess that Wesley Brown's images are not $250,000 productions with a full film crew.
