Lily Brooks received a BFA in Photography from the Massachusetts College of Art + Design and an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin. In her research, Lily uses photography to describe systems and structures of control – personal, political, and environmental. Her ongoing series We Have to Count the Clouds traces the visual remnants of our relationship to weather and climate.
