Adele Quartley Brown's work was recently selected for inclusion in The Billboard Creative's 7th Annual Exhibition in LA. [April 2021]. Adele is a NYC-based artist whose photographs focus on the intersection of perception and misconception, raising questions about what we believe and what we know. Interested in illuminating the space between actual and alternative realities, she photographs commonplace scenes where she can add a wry perspective. Her information gathering experiences as a nonfiction writer, licensed investigator, and humanitarian sector advisor inform her art.
Inspired by photo surrealists and narratives where humorous and bizarre subplots often outshine the storyline, Adele believes that oddness is universal. She photographs people, and places that are overlooked but in plain sight. A sense of mystery and discovery are at the heart of what Adele photographs.
