Word Play

Steven James Brown


This photographic series is the result of a two-year project, which involved cutting individual words from works of literature and then covering objects that Brown felt related to the text with his “word skins.” While printed words have visual impact as aesthetic shapes and forms, they also demand our attention as we search for meaning and understanding. Words and photography are the language of revolution and continue to impact how we view and understand the world.
