The work of American fine art photographer Brooke Shaden is a way to create new worlds where the impossible becomes possible, where women are floatin and the fairy tales, transparent cloths, dreams, textures, all freeze a moment that never seems to end. She attempts to place herself within worlds she wishes we could live in, where secrets float out in the open, redifining the meaning of being alive.
Brooke Shaden was born in March of 1987 in Lancaster, PA, USA. She grew up near the “Amish Country” until attending Temple University. Brooke was photographically born in December 2008 after graduating from Temple with two degrees: film and English. She now resides in Los Angeles, CA, USA with her husband and three cats.
Brooke has been said to encapsulate a new way of creating imagery for our time and has “…dramatically restated a new photographic feminist agenda for the 21st century.” Her use of the square format and heavy texture work to create a painterly aesthetic is redefining the boundaries of photography. With these tools at hand, she creates new worlds through her images.
