Tommy Brown: Upstate is a retrospective look at a photographer’s decades-long study of his home in Central New York. Brown was born in Norwich, NY, and earned his undergraduate degree from Colgate University and his Master of Fine Arts degree from Yale University. As a young man, he traveled through Europe and briefly lived in New York City, all the while assembling a portfolio of compelling street photography. Before long, however, Brown returned to Chenango County because he liked the peculiar challenge of being a street photographer in a rural setting.
