Brooklynn Kascel makes visual stories about family, relationship, and conflicts of expression and repression in midwestern culture. She is devoted to documenting those in proximity; focusing on the repetition and familiarity of the human condition in relation to evolving social, economic and environmental concerns. 

Brooklynn grew up in Marion, Iowa and began her photography career with the Daily Iowan. She graduated from the University of Iowa with BFA degrees in Journalism and Sociology. Upon graduation, Brooklynn worked as an assistant for Danny Wilcox Frazier of VII Photo. Her work has been published with the Daily Iowan, the Associated Collegiate Press, BURN Magazine, Les Rencontres de la Photographie and exhibited by The Midwest Center for Photography, Photo Workshop New York/Spazio Labo, Missouri Photo Workshop and Kolga Tbilisi Photo.

She continues to document intimate dialogues existing in the Upper Midwest and beyond.
