About MeHi everyone,
My name is Steffanie and I'm a photographer based in Long Beach, CA specializing in conceptual art.
You know...I've been on this site for several years now and have come to a realization of many things.
I've grown immensely tired of photographing girls with no purpose at all other than looking attractive and fixating on this idea on how beauty should be defined and quite honestly, I am done. There is so much more to this world than a tight body and plump breasts. As a trained fine art photographer (any photographer who makes content for that matter), I feel we all have the responsibilty to be careful with what imagery we put out there.
On a deeper level, images, both moving and still, influence and shape the way we feel, the way we think and how we treat others, whether we are conscious of it or not.
Photographs are a mere illusion of millions of colored squares we call pixels, blended together asking us to make sense of the world while planting seeds in our minds.
I don't believe we are sophisticated enough to understand the greater implication photographs can do to us as a whole and so I want to remove myself from systems of oppression. Even when a photograph is about feminism and empowerment, the viewer is the one who is taking control and leaves with the final word. In order to move forward, image making needs to be put at a halt while conversations about objectification generate and make way into the mainstream media. In this day in age, one must be a responsible photographer.
I want to work with creatives who see past the bullshit and want to create something larger than themselves.
