Click to preview Visions of Worlds photo book

Brooke Shaden takes us through a maze of enchanting photographic stories while sharing how she created her images as well as her inspiration behind them. From props to locations to concepts, each detail is meticulously planned to bring us countless little worlds. While they come straight from her imagination, they are places that we have all been to in our own minds at one time or another, consciously or subconsciously.

"There are countless worlds that could come alive through photography. There are different ways of looking at every situation. There are ways to turn a disturbing image into something beautiful, and ways to see the remnants of life in death. There are ways to escape into the worlds that we imagine from childhood, and there are ways to live through them, even if only for that brief moment of looking into an image and seeing yourself. These photographic stories are my way of detailing various fears and imaginary worlds that I wish I could escape into. I detail the thoughts behind the images and the ways in which each image contains a unique world, always connected to our reality and yet fundamentally different. In many ways I am less of a photographer and more a creator of worlds. That is what I am constantly striving for. It is the reason I started photography, and the reason I continue to create images." - Brooke Shaden
