He´s a "street photographer" in the tradition of Henri Cartier Bresson and Robert Frank, althought he works exclusively in color. As an early advocate of color photography (mid-60's)
he was instrumental in changing the attitude toward the use of color photography from one of resistance to nearly universale acceptance.

Jason Brownrigg was born in New-York, and returned there to study at Parsons School of Design after growing up in sunny California. His love of photography began at age ten when he started taking pictures with a plastic camera given to him by his father. These first pictures turned out as shiny 4x6 abstracts color and light. He had to explain to people what was in most of his photographs, but knew that was on to something great.
