Brad Meese's work explores themes of space and perception within the urban environment. His images speak to his understanding not only of the technical aspects of his craft, but also to his unique artistic vision, combining elements of documentary photography with a cinematic sensibility that challenges the viewer's perceptions of a landscape – the city – that is familiar to so many. These talents and vision are also extended toward Meese's work in the natural environment, work that reveals and conceals its subject matter, often employing elements of the subject itself to obscure or illuminate the landscape. Meese has exhibited largely in the Chicago area where he lives and works. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University (1999), and following that completed a one year specialized photographic program at Focal Point Visual Arts Learning Centre in Vancouver B.C. (2001).
