-- World-traveling explorer, photographer and writer Amanda Brown has just introduced her latest collection of photography from her life and experiences in Nepal. Currently based in Kathmandu her collection focuses on local people, cultural articles and historic sites with a twist: she has taken her artistic photojournalism style and styled the photographs inspired by pieces created by her 10 favorite art masters: Pablo Picasso, Leonardo DaVinci, Andy Warhol, Banksy, Johannes Vermeer, Vncent Van Gogh, Andrea Palladio, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Steve McCurry.
While based in Kathmandu, Nepal for the past month on the “Top of the World” she has spent her days devoted to teaching English to Tibetan refugees. The influence and close friendships that she developed has given her a deeper sense of the culture and the delicate balance that life battles precariously in order to thrive in this harsh environment.
From the Southern United States, Amanda is from a long line of historic change-makers – the 1st President of the USA, a Judge, a legendary District Attorney, a Hollywood Doctor & Nurse to the first movie star of black & white films. She laughingly remarks, “I think a lot of my ability to do, adapt and create has been passed down through my family’s blood since the time of my distant Uncle George Washington becoming the first President of the United States. My desire to go explore, to share what I discover with my followers and to help in any way I can is just a part of my DNA.”
The whimsical stories of Amanda’s travels – interesting, harsh and funny – can be viewed on her website along with the new collection “Tops from the Top.” Affordably priced, they are a wonderful value to add to your art collection and collected by art enthusiasts, television producers and top sports figures around the world.
