This month’s Featured Photographer (FP) is Brooke Shaden.
Brooke Shaden was born in March of 1987 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, near the “Amish Country”. Brooke was photographically born in December 2008 after graduating from Temple with bachelor degrees in film and English.
She began creating self-portraits for ease and to have full control over the images, and has since grown into a self-portrait fine art photographer. She places herself within environments she wishes to explore, where secrets are exposed, impossibilities are tested, and life is questioned in eras beyond our own.
Brooke works to capture fantastic realities within her photographic frame. By using painterly techniques as well as the square format, traditional photographic properties are replaced by otherworldly elements.
Please enjoy her surrealistic pieces. They are stunning.
