More Mystical Photography by Brooke Shaden

Los Angeles-based photographer Brooke Shaden definitely knows how to capture mystically surreal moments, as we've seen in the past. She manages to find a somber beauty in the unusual realms she creates with attention to coloring and composition. There is a painterly quality to her work that translates beautifully through the camera, awarding each image the ability to tell its own story.

Shaden's portfolio indicates an acute attention to detail that does not go unnoticed. She is just as aware of her models and the environments she places them in as the flow of their attire and the positioning of props. The talented photographer's series of works exhibit a playfulness with fabric, allowing skirts and attire to drape and flow with the wind. This visual technique heightens the expressive content's ability to communicate emotion. It takes great skill to achieve the masterful storytelling Shaden exhibits through her atypically represented tales of “what it means to be alive.” Every shot stands on its own, offering a different, compelling narrative.
