Brown is one of 10 artists whose work was selected for the juried exhibit. Brown showed the collection at the Main Street Artists gallery in downtown Quincy in October 2010. All the black and white photos are taken in the same manner, with the front end squared off. "The squares and rectangles of windows within the squares and rectangles of trailers, I trapped within the square camera format," Brown said at the time. "The repetition of form causes people to look closely at each trailer for variation. Portrait-like, individual personalities are revealed."
