Shawn Theodore

Shawn Theodore is a Philadelphia based multi-disciplinary artist, whose recent photographic work encompasses investigations of African American and African Diasporic life within disappearing Black American neighborhoods.  His work ‘Church of Broken Pieces’, ‘Future Antebellum’ and ‘The Fruit of Comets’ develops myth-based visual narratives to confront constructs of African Diasporic identity as it is challenged by historical and contemporary American and European society.
