S. Brown also known as Sweatmother, is a filmmaker, photographer and creative director located in London. Their work reclaims the often misplaced voice, body and gaze by repurposing femme and gender non-conforming identities in spaces where objectification is removed, and the agency and difference in the otherness is celebrated.
