In The Artists of The Invisible Dog, New York City photographer Malcolm Brownpresents a solo exhibit of 32 portraits of artists from a unique Brooklyn community of sculptors, illustrators, toy makers, painters, jewelry designers, photographers and welders, a photographic study highlighting the artists of The Invisible Dog. Through this intensive, fulfilling year-long project, Malcolm has finalized a series of portraits that creatively connect the artists to their work, space, and artistic processes, while inevitably mixing in doses of his own quirkiness, humor and conceptual thinking. Individually, each portrait tells a unique story; collectively, they are the creative energy that is The Invisible Dog.
Trained as an anthropologist and spatial sociologist, Malcolm uses his keen sensitivity to observe how people work and how their personalities, their craft and environment coexist. The use of a variety of photographic techniques and the challenge to make each portrait different result in a spirited and refreshing body of work.
For the first time, these personalities will be presented through photography and The Artists of The Invisible Dog will be formally introduced to the community where they all live and work. The photographs will be available for purchase framed and as individual prints. A 68-page color book signed by the artist will also be for sale.
