Rachel Louise Brown makes responsive work based on interactions with the unfamiliar. She observes the world as a stage, exploring alone and occasionally populating the images with willing strangers. Through these interactions, Brown endeavors to question the construction of society and to give a platform for the people and places that come before her lens.
