About Jeff Brouws

Jeff Brouws documents the contemporary American landscape in photographs that also reveal traces of history: “I often feel like a visual anthropologist recording our present day civilization,” he has said of his practice. Brouws’ photographs reveal a civilization transitioning out of an industrial economy into an undefined future. Among the evidence of this transition, which Brouws presents in a deadpan yet poetic style, are abandoned gas stations, crumbling factories, and highway vistas punctuated with commercial advertisements.

American , b. 1955, San Francisco, California, based in Stanfordville, New York
