"Cannon’s photographs create a visceral connection that draw the viewer in, yet his presence behind the lens remains quiet." –Brown W. Cannon III
Brown W. Cannon III exposes his audience to landscapes, people and moments. His photographs create a visceral connection that draw the viewer in, yet his presence behind the lens remains quiet.
Whether watching a thunderstorm roll in or horses in a vast landscape, Cannon’s camera explores his subjects in anticipation of the moments that best define an experience. For him, photography is a means to connect to the land and to celebrate the people we often pass by without notice. He believes that there is always a story to tell.
Cannon studied photography at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and was named one of the 30 photographers under 30 to watch by PDN magazine.
His photography has earned him four Lowell Thomas awards for Best Editorial Travel Features as recently as 2012. He is a regular contributor to Travel & Leisure, Sunset, Conde Nast, Men's Journal, Audubon, and Geo Saison to name a few.
Since his first solo exhibition in San Francisco in 2003, Cannon has shown regularly around the country including 2015 shows in Denver and Parker, Colorado; Bend and Portland, Oregon; and Charleston, South Carolina. His photographs are collected worldwide.
