EK Interview: Shae Detar

by

March 25, 2016

Shae Detar

Her models are predominantly naked, taking the photographs out of time, and giving them an other worldly sensation that, to quote Goldilocks, is just right. Check out her interview for more about how rad she is:

Jean-Francois Lepage0
Jean-François Lepage is a photographer whose working methods are closer to that of a painter. His paradoxically alluring and disquieting photographs bare evidence to a process in which he physically cuts, draws and works into their surface to intricately evolve and brutally deconstruct the original image.

Selina Mayer - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Selina Mayer is a UK based photographer who creates eerily intimate black and white images of both the human body and form as well as landscape. They are fashioned in the style of the old photographic masters (think Avedon, Penn, Weston), focusing primarily on the figure; the curves, crevices, shadows, and marks of all humans. Her images capture the delicate balance between sexy and vulnerable. selinamayer.com

“Following the ending of a significant relationship in my life, an undoing began. Whilst adjusting to being a single woman, I started to create a photographic narrative based on the experience of losing love; directing other women to portray the gradual emotional and circumstantial stages, along the well-trodden track of the broken-hearted.” -Laura Stevens, London, UK
