North East England
Amber Brown is a Northumbrian photographer and printmaker. She explores notions of place,
home and belonging over continuous periods of time through cultural, political and personal
narratives. Her practice is rooted in many slow, ritualistic processes which largely fall under the
umbrella of printmaking and large format photography, a medium which she is dedicated to.
She utilises labour-intensive techniques to investigate the post-industrial landscape, ideas of
Northernness and how archives can interact with the contemporary.
She also practices in curation and outreach, recently working on a programme in Scotland
looking at barriers to arts education. Amber Brown gained a BA in Photography at Edinburgh
College of Art and is studying an MA in Art Museum & Gallery Studies at Newcastle University.
