AP print from this series in FAMSF collection, 1995.131.3 Per Karen Tsujimoto on catalog worksheet:"...In an artist's statement Brown further explained 'On one level then, my paining [from this period of the "Flight"] became a meditation on photography-stretching its time, compressing its already flattened space, coloring its gray scale or exaggerating it's kodacolor-as a way of talking about seeing and ways of seeing in the context of history.'"
