“My art making is mostly fueled by an incessant drive to follow through with whatever creative thought I feel inspired by”. Meet Evan Parness, photographer and current Creative Director of SHEI Magazine.
“The more I say yes to an idea, even when rough and unpolished, the more freedom I find in its ultimate creative expression.” I’ll try to push everything beyond what I’ve tried before, and am always motivated and inspired when collaborating with others who share a similar vision or passion for creating”. His focus when shooting lies in the composition of the image (or, arranging elements of the image to express the goal of the photo).
“Framing is the truest way to articulate your perspective as the creator of your work. Additionally, I’ll try to focus on the expressiveness of the subject, wanting something that feels genuine to them and present in the moment I’m shooting. My favorite work has come from capturing the feeling of something more so than the aesthetic, when it can resonate or make you think about others or yourself or the world around us beyond what’s in frame”.
