Quinn Russell Brown (b. 1990 in Evansville, Indiana) is a photographer and editor based in Seattle and working at University of Washington Magazine (circulation: 250,000). He likes portraits that investigate and comment on identity, pop culture, citizenship, service and race. His still life photography mostly focuses on manmade objects and technology.

In 2019, one of his pictures was chosen for the exhibition “American Portraiture Today” at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. The show features “artworks that challenge the definition of portraiture” and will be on display from October 2019 to August 2020, and then travel the country for two years.
