About Brian Merriam

Brian Merriam was born under a full moon on Halloween night. He first picked up a camera to document a cross country drive with friends, and has not put it down since. Lately, his kit has consisted of a Leica M7, a Contax G2 and a Fuiji Klasse. His work, brimming with mystery, seeks to document the forgotten corners, empty roads, and nowhere places of America and beyond. Initially, Brian took a plethora of photographs and crafted stories around them. As his work has evolved, he starts with an initial concept to dictate his approach and searches to show the world – full of mystery – to his audience. He finds inspiration from going West of the Rockies and taking the time to get lost.
