"A series of photographs that are both intimate and alien" - The New York Times
Awakening is a short film by artist Trevor Brown exploring that time between sleep and opening your eyes. Inspired by an idea from MASCULAR Magazine’s editor Vincent Keith, Brown known for his still images took up his tablet to shoot a film to be used exclusively for the upcoming Portraits Issue of MASCULAR Magazine. Working with a long time friend Joel Caceres composed original music for the short film. View the film in MASCULAR Magazine at http://mascularmagazine.com
I fought for my artistic integrity and won. This small victory in a much larger battle has given me the energy to pick up my cameras and start shooting again. So expect some new work very soon. Censorship sucks on so many levels it really drains you spiritually and artistically. #vscocam #trevorbrown
My work was recently censored again, and this lead me to explore why isn’t there a space where I can freely express myself completely and holistically as an artist. Understanding most corporate services are into making money, not encouraging artistic freedom of expression.
