Photo Diary: Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.

 

Photographed by Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.

 

I'm thinking about place and home.

I was born and grew up on Long Island

in a primarily white (though culturally diverse) suburb

I'm a Black American, which means to exist

in a liminal space of belonging - not quite here,

not quite there - definitively nowhere

and everywhere at once
