A GALLERY OF SELECTED WORK BY SHAMSHAWAN SCOTT
Shamshawan Scott moves like a jedi. His passion for martial arts is the witness. He’s interested in the cosmos and our perception of time. His work is deeply tied to his Afro-Carribean heritage, the way he portrays talent and the Black experience shows how profoundly entrenched he is with the history of his people.
As a resident of musical Mecca Atlanta, Shamshawan’s visual practice revolves around spotlighting artists under a special beam. A soft yet dramatic filter which gives the viewer a warm, relaxing feeling.
His photos are candid. They convey a sense of familiarity with the subject as if the goal was to portray the mundane moments which link every community and hold our life together.
Through a curated series of images, we discover his world and open a window onto his mind, his talent and interest for his surroundings.
