Brooke Shaden (b.1987, USA) - Upon pondering / The world above
Brooke Shaden is a fine art photographer living and working in the Los Angeles area. Her passion lies in creating new worlds within her photographic frame. Her vision extends beyond the realm of the camera, creating images that resemble paintings and speak of an era that is not our own. Brooke’s photography questions the definition of what it means to be alive. Within the space of a square frame, Brooke tries to build a world that is undeniably separate from the one we live in. What fascinates the artist about any artistic medium is that it can pull the viewer out of a logical and common world, and place them within a space that is more alive. “I am not in love with any particular medium of art as much as I am in love with visually representing the stories I have in my mind.” (cf. artist’s statement). Great thanks to arpeggia for this Tumblr Monday for introducing us Brooke’s surreal photography!
