Fine Art Photographer Brooke Shaden and Canon Explorer of Light Eddie Tapp — Photofocus Podcast 10/5/13
This week's show features two tremendous talents. First up, Melissa Niu interviews Brooke Shaden, a fine art photographer and explore her creative process. Then Rich Harrington catches up with Canon Explorer of Light Eddie Tapp about his new project—aerial photography.
Brooke Shaden began creating self-portraits for ease and to have full control over the images, and has since grown into a self-portrait artist. 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 works to create new worlds within her photographic frame. By using painterly techniques as well as the square format, traditional photographic properties are replaced by otherworldly elements. Brooke's photography questions the definition of what it means to be alive.
