Troy Brooks

Troy Brooks’s female subjects are not what we might call “beautiful” in the traditional sense. But these oddly elongated, crystal-eyed ladies are nonetheless compelling to look at.


Each one seem to be a piece of a story (that writes itself differently for every viewer, no doubt).

One can’t help but wonder what lies beneath these contemplative faces…what have they seen?

  1. If we want to donate to the cause, but don’t *need* anything from the store, what should we do?

      I am *hopefully* going to be starting a little nonprofit in the next few months…not exactly for my specific illness (far too narrow), but a resource to empower people who have undergone radical physical transformation/disfigurement as a result of illness. Stay tuned!

  2. Haunting to the imagination. All the ladies elude to being love stricken or the devil may care; a hardship festering their insides. I think a great fourth addition to these would be the lady on his homepage, with the crow on her shoulder.

  3. Compelling indeed, though a ‘slow burner’ for me. When I first saw these pics I thought: ‘Yeah, sort of interesting.’ Something must have lit a spark though, because I had to keep coming back for one more look… Finally I checked out the link to Troy Brooks’ website and got totally hooked.

    Sort of Raymond Chandler meets the court of Louis XVI, with just a dash of Stieg Larsson thrown in to confuse us. Delicious! -Nx

  4. These are great although they remind me a little of Marilyn Manson!
