Photo Artist Statement

Brian Russell lives in Durham, North Carolina. He uses film and digital photography to investigate our relationship with buildings as large sculptures that enclose us.

In throw-away culture, structures are not preserved. Brian seeks to record the many states of a building’s artfulness before they disappear. Primarily by making photo art from images of buildings instead of technical records. 

Architecture is for the wealthy. Buildings should be for everyone. Art is us.
