PHOTOGRAPHY BY LEE BROWN

“To me, photography, art and design are about finding something extraordinary in ordinary places…I believe it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” Born in Scepter, Saskatchewan in 1962, Lee grew up fascinated with the stark and beautiful landscape emanating from his humble surroundings. Wanting to seize those images and emotions they evoked, Lee purchased his first camera at a very young age, and captured the colorful and dynamic interplay of the farming community around him. The allure of expression through art had him hooked from the very beginning.

At the age of sixteen, enchanted by the ambiance of design, colour, truth and beauty, Lee left his modest life in Saskatchewan for the vibrant culture and diversity of New York City, working in the realm of fashion. The majestic nature of the city drew him in, inspiring an integration of elements from his past on the prairies with those of his vivacious present. He quickly moved into the field of design which catapulted his career to new pinnacles, the demand for his talents ever flourishing.

While exploring the boundless environments he inhabited, Lee developed a yearning to see, think and feel what else reality had to offer. He embarked upon the world, working abroad, absorbing the flavour and customs of each country he visited. Every stopover furthered his depth and drive for creative inspiration, transforming him into the ever-evolving aesthetic being he is today. His design-driven philosophy is evident in the different arenas he uses to express and share his perspective of the universe. Whether he is in the studio with a brush, in the scenery with a camera, or designing an award winning living space for his clients, Lee brings a high level of expertise and experience to each endeavor, drawing from his past to construct a daring new future. Though truly a citizen of the world, Lee currently resides and creates in Toronto, Canada; where he spends his time doing what he loves, with the people he loves, helping those around him realize their dreams.

“What drives me is the never ending will to give the best of who I am.” - Lee Brown
