Brooke Shaden photography
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.
Self portraiture for her is not autobiographical in nature. Instead, she attempts to place herself within worlds she wishes we could live in, where secrets float out in the open, where the impossible becomes possible. Brooke’s photography questions the definition of what it means to be alive.
