About the Artist

About the Artist

Born and raised in Detroit, Brian Day was quite fascinated by his father’s camera: the pop of the flash, canisters of film, and priceless candid moments of family and friends. As he grew older, Brian took a great interest in motion pictures, specifically cinematography. The drama that could be created through the perspective of the lens, the emotion conveyed through orchestrated light, stories told visually – these made a deep impact on him.

Brian loves the timeless nature of black and white photographs. A photograph can make a statement; it can pose a question or even provide an answer. Because we see in color rather than black and white, it is inherently impossible to share exactly what a photographer saw in any given scene. However, it is entirely possible to share what that photographer felt. It is this communication of emotions-the engagement of not just the eyes, but the mind as well-that interests Brian most in photography.
