The Artist

Bucking traditional photographic formalism, Shawn Theodore's Afromythology rebuts Afro Futuristic aesthetic values and serves as a continual affirmation for those who are in no way unsure of their own agency and historical context.

The Story

Bucking traditional photographic formalism, Theodore's improvisational style artfully blends Romanticism, commercial appeal, and studio technique to achieve his trademark style of fine art photography. This personal aesthetic orthodoxy is rooted in what he has coined as ‘Afromythology’ (his not-so-subtle rebuttal to Afrofutristic aesthetic values), and serves as a continual affirmation for those who, while oft-overlooked, are in no way unsure of their own agency within the context of ever-changing historically accurate, and vividly imagined, archives of the Black American traditions that predate Blackness as an American Invention.
