Michael Christopher Brown is an American photographer based in Los Angeles and raised in the Skagit Valley, a farming community in Washington State. His work in Cuba includes Paradiso, which explores the island’s electronic music scene and youth culture as well as Yo Soy Fidel , a book documenting the funeral procession of Fidel Castro. His work in Libya, Libyan Sugar (2016), which received the ICP Infinity Award, explored ethical distance and the iconography of warfare. In Libyan Sugar, as in many of his projects, he uses a camera phone. His work from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Congo Sunrise, will be published in 2020/2021 as one of a series of three books, which includes two books of collected work. A contributing photographer to publications such as National Geographic Magazine and The New York Times Magazine, Brown was subject of the 2012 HBO documentary Witness: Libya. His photographs were exhibited at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Instituto Cervantes (New York), The Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), the Annenberg Space for Photography, and the Brooklyn Museum. https://www.michaelchristopherbrown.com Patricia Lanza : You have a large body of work on Cuba, how...
