Brooks Fletcher

Conceptual Photographer

Born in Oakland, California, Brooks received a BA in Communication from Sacramento State and served 11 years in the U.S. Army as a photojournalist. Following the military, he received an MFA in Photography from Academy of Art University.

Using lines and mirrors to create perception-altering compositions - prompting the viewer to not only question the nature of what is being depicted but that of the medium itself, Brooks' work has been recognized by Nikon and presented in spaces throughout San Francisco.

When he isn't out shooting or working as the store and community manager at the Peak Design Flagship Store, Brooks volunteers as a full-time photography mentor for S.F.-based youth photography program First Exposures. He currently lives and works in San Francisco.

“I discovered that this camera was the technical means of communicating what the world looks like in a state of heightened awareness. And it’s that awareness of really looking at the everyday world with clear and focused attention that I’m interested in.” -Stephen Shore
