Crane Kalman Brighton : Rachel Louise Brown : Simulations


Crane Kalman Brighton presents the work of British photographic artist, Rachel Louise Brown. In it’s second Viewing Room exhibitions, the gallery showcase Brown’s ‘Simulations’ series, produced across a four-year artist residency at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, Florida from 2014-2018. The work was selected for the ‘Women in Photography’ Photo London Pavilion Commission in 2019, alongside Mary McCartney and Susan Meiselas.

A graduate of the Royal College of Art Photography MA programme, Brown observes the world as a stage, creating photographs whilst exploring and experiencing unfamiliar places alone; often at night.

As the explorations evolve, strangers found via casting calls, begin to populate the images. By capturing the psychology involved in these processes, Brown endeavours to question society’s construction of fear, gender and escapism.

‘Simulations’ focuses on the oft-advertised image of Florida as the land of escapism, entertainment and thrills, a symbol of the American Dream. Through attractions such as the Palm Beach Zoo, Mar-a-Lago, Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairground and The Breakers, Brown has captured an intentionally objective view of these familiar landmarks to produce a highly original and compelling body of work.
