LA based Brendan Fowler belongs to that group of talented people you just can't help but envy; not only is he a successful musician (having previously performed with JD Samson among others), but also a successful performance and visual artist with previous exhibitions at über cool spaces like the dormant Rivington Arms and Half Gallery in NYC to his credit. In 2013, Fowler was selected for MoMA's New Photography exhibition series, an ongoing series dating back to 1985 to highlight artists that have redefined and pushed the boundaries of the medium of photography.

Fowler's crash piece series, which was exhibited at MoMA, makes for a most interesting hybrid between photography and sculpture. His three-dimensional, sculptural compositions include multiple, geometrically arranged frames literally crashed into one another. The frames hold snaps of his everyday life and friends juxtaposed with images of flowers, a recurring motif commonly and historically associated with beauty. It altogether makes for a pretty refreshing take on photography.
