Brooke Shaden’s work speaks to my love of old fairy tales. Brooke is able to convey the true darkness spoken to in the original fairy tales, but she does it with such beauty that I often find myself transported back to my childhood imaginings.
It was through following Brooke’s work with the Annenberg Space for Photography’s online lecture series that I discovered the next two photographer’s work.
Angela Bacon-Kidwell’s work has a haunting quality to it that makes me pause and contemplate her use of metaphor and symbolism. There is something dreamy about her photography.
Julie Blackmon’s work makes me laugh. I love dark comedy and her art conveys that. She photographs real life with a sense of humor and craziness.
The last photographer I will share today is Mikko Lagerstedt. He is a Finnish photographer. His work is filled with atmosphere, water, cold, and emotion.
