Nathaniel Brown  is a filmmaker and photographer making work about place, belonging and community. On the move for the last decade, he balances transience and liminality with a practice centered in intimacy, trust, and cross-cultural collaboration.

Nathaniel’s work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Nowness, Dazed, CNN, and the South China Morning Post, among others.

Equally comfortable in remote mountain ranges, high-risk enviroments, and avant-garde performance pieces: Nathaniel is adaptable, proactive, and thorough, with experience on large productions, long-term collaborative pieces, and as a solo operator. He is a Fulbright Scholar, fluent in Chinese, and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Middlebury College; HEFAT trained by two different ACOS Alliance accredited programs; part of the documentary collective Hi Lo and a member of the Video Consortium; head of all things porcelian at Wing On Wo & Co; and once rode his motorcycle from Shanghai to London.
