12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Culture and the Arts

Niesha Brown’s work investigates shapes and patterns found in nature. Her deeply toned photographs reflect an eye for the mystical and enchanting. Of Jamaican descent, Brown’s practice often draws upon vast views, personal history, recollections of dreams and Caribbean folklore to breathe new life into the traditional and forgotten ties to nature. Her work with the human body at the forefront of natural backdrop calls into question our relationship with a more mystical past.
