Born in New York, Alix Brown studied at the College of Architecture, Art and Planning at Cornell University. She went on to earn her Masters degree in Photography and Related Media at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. After working in museums, galleries, non-profit arts organizations, a stint in the corporate world, and teaching in non-traditional classrooms from nursery to high school, she has recently returned to commercial photography. She brings over 25 years of experience to crafting her art and documenting life. Alix has produced both commissioned and editorial work, client-based portraiture and fine art. Her work can be found in private collections, restaurants, synagogues, and on websites, as well as in both print and online publications.
Alix has lectured on “Photography and the Jewish Image” and is currently working on a book on that subject. She continues to work with teens to help them learn about and use photography as a way to explore identity, and empower them to make positive change in the world around them. Alix has collaborated with Facing History and Ourselves and The Jewish Lens to enhance, design and develop curriculum with these goals in mind.
Alix currently resides in Edgemont, New York ~ the town that’s not a town ~ with her three children and three dogs.
