My name is Bruce Quantrelle Williams. I was born in Baton Rouge, LA at 3:01PM on February 24, 1993. I am a freelance fine art street photographer. Focusing on documenting contemporary social problems is a passion of mine. After being diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and depression, photography became a hobby of release. My love of art and humanity has always been a large part of me since childhood. My parents are from New Roads and Bachelor. They moved our family to a small apartment off of Cedarcrest Lane in Baton Rouge. At age 5, we moved into the Old Jefferson neighborhood where we lived until moving to Gonzales, LA in 2006. Parkview Oaks Elementary, Glasgow Middle School, Kenilworth Middle School, Woodlawn Middle School, Gonzales Middle School, and East Ascension High School make up my primary education. Having moved to so many different schools, I was able to notice the differences and similarities in people from different communities at a young age. My higher education was started at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Baton Rouge Community College, before dropping out. Before photography became my central focus, I spent my time working with a grassroots music event curation group called Seaux LA. In 2017, Seaux LA executive-produced Bloom Music & Arts Fest in downtown Baton Rouge. It was a cultural explosion that brought the creative community and general public of Baton Rouge together. My photography training is mostly self-taught. Through my dedication to the craft, works of mine have been featured by The Advocate newspaper, LSU’s The Daily Reveille, and Dig Baton Rouge. From 2018-2019, The Advocate hired me as a freelance photojournalist for their Arts and Entertainment department. My photography has been exhibited in the Mayor’s Office of Sharon Weston Broome, Local Arts Light Collective, and Stella Jones Gallery-which most recently listed as one of Beyoncé’s favorite Black-owned businesses. Also, my work was exhibited by the Bluebonnet Library in Oct 2020 and presented by the Special Collections department for the Main Library at Goodwood in July 2020.35mm film and 120mm film are my mediums used in photography, and all of the film is developed by myself at home in Mid City South, Baton Rouge LA.
