My name is Shawn. I have lived in Atlanta for the past ten years. I already have two BAs, one in Theater and the other in Graphic Design. I am currently back in school to get my masters in Film and Video. The best way to describe me is rebel/heart. I love to play around with fashion. I like the romance in art. I like art for education purpose. I love photography brings out the beauty of things in life. Actually bringing things to life and the human eye.
Then I have the rebel side. I like to challenge social norms. I like to push the envelope and make people think. I like playing with sexuality, social stereotypes, etc.. I dont believe in following rules. Rich people act or should act like...professional people act or should act like...., models act or should act a certain way...all photographers act or should act a certain way.... both men and women should act a certain way...Athletic men and women should act a certain way...etc... You get my point. To be more specific, I am very interested in Laura Mulvery's "male gaze" theory. The link in my profile is to one of my projects and research that I have done on the subject.
Many people out there are in the art field because it builds their self confidence and their egos. They need to have all this extra attention with lights, stylist, make-up artists, etc... Dont get me wrong, that all can help but it does not make a killer image. Pure honest, creative, talent is at the core of an image. if you dont have that, then all that other red rug stuff will do nothing but help feed ones ego.
