Reflection, the new book by self-portrait photographer Brooke Shaden is a collection of her work over the past decade. Divided into six thematic sections—Protection, Imagination, Duality, Obscurity, Rebirth, and Power—Reflection features photographs of Shaden situated in otherworldly scenes surrounded by elements of nature, props, and everyday objects. These images leap off the page, transporting the viewer to a dream-like place where the strange and the familiar marry, and the exploration into what it means to be human—both the gloriousness and the messiness—is unmistakable. It is a true artist—and a masterful storyteller—who can uplift and transform the viewer by portraying a darkness that is nothing short of beautiful, as Shaden does in Reflection. At once magical, haunting, and uncannily familiar, the works in this book are sure to provoke and inspire us both to ask questions and find answers.
