About Photographer

Brian T. Scott is a Brooklyn, NY based photographer, actor, composer and multi-instrumentalist who was raised in central Vermont, USA. He studied piano, played baseball, collected fish, studied Spanish, played guitar/ sang in loud rock bands and moved furniture for a living well into his twenties, eventually moving on to a career in theater, specifically as an actor, writer and director (and photographer) for the internationally acclaimed performance group, "Blue Man Group" in New York. Since becoming obsessed with photography and cameras while standing in a shopping mall in Arizona in 2008, Brian has travelled and photographed in the Ukraine, Cuba, India, Germany, the U.K., Mexico, Brazil, Taiwan, Portugal, South Korea, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Canada and much of the United States, including in his own apartment where he has amassed an impressive but mostly useless library of photographs of his own feet. Brian has always been looking for something and having a camera has made the search immensely satisfying. He has exhibited work at the Sloan gallery in NYC, The Darkroom gallery in Vermont and was a silver award winner in the PX3 photo competition in 2011.
