About Brian Howell
Brian Howell is a Canadian photographer, notable for large scale projects that examine vernacular expressions of shifting societal and personal values. His subjects are drawn from fringe or marginalized communities; people and places resonant with allegorical meanings for an age that seems to Howell to be both broken and blinded. Howell’s photographic series build on a truth-telling mantra of an earlier era of documentarians, though they are given structure and further meaning by a more rigorous contemporary, conceptual framework. This survey exhibition will feature works from a number of Howell’s large-scale projects from the past 25 years.
Brian Howell graduated from Ryerson Polytechnical University in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film and Photography. He is the author of two books and his work has been exhibited and published internationally.
