Brooke Shaden, an Arizona-based fine art photographer, is extremely creative and talented. She creates amazing surreal images that are dark and disturbing yet mesmerizingly beautiful. The photography series, featured below, depicts the ethereal dream state of nightmares and horrors, as envisioned and captured by her highly imaginative mind.
Enjoy this fascinating artwork… and the nightmarish ride. 🙂
Brooke Shaden was born in March of 1987 in Lancaster, PA, USA. She grew up near the “Amish Country” until attending Temple University. Brooke was photographically born in December 2008 after graduating from Temple with bachelor degrees in film and English. She now resides in Arizona, USA with her husband and three cats.
She 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.
