BROWNIE 800x1200 800x1200

Director: Kieran Brownie

Having the privilege to roam free when I was young gave me space to question the things around me. What’s around the corner? How high can we go? My first point and shoot 35mm film camera allowed that curiosity to flourish, cameras let me step back and analyze what was in front of me, or what I was apart of, they gave perspective. Mountains do the same. Maybe that’s why I do this stuff?
