Brian Henry is a self taught, experimental art photographer and explorer. His first camera came from money he earned blowing up balloons. While Brian Henry had won a few scholarships to attend art school, he chose to apply his money to his own unscripted, artistic journey. He has traveled up and down the East Coast of the U.S., as well as Europe and the Balkans.
“My work is an ongoing journal documenting architectural decay and my own mortality. I attempt to portray the beauty I see in these structures and occasionally include myself and others within them. Although photographs are made, a large part of my work is the adventure of exploring new territory and experiencing the unknown. It often involves traveling far and constant attention to my surroundings.” -Brian Henry
