Have I already told you that Canada is really a big source of stunning artists to feature on my blog?
This time I found a really interesting and promising artist coming from Montreal, he’s Sean Mundy and I’m sure you’ll love his conceptual photography.
Very young, self-taught and also involved in music production, Sean started his journey in photography with a small digital camera his parents gave him to document a school trip. A few years later he was already saving for his DSLR, and planning ideas to shoot and to experiment.
As a way to get more consistent in his production and to improve his skills, he started a 52 week project (one picture a week for one year) that helped him in learning how to plan shots and how to focus more on content that location.
As a lot of conceptual artists, Sean Mundy often models for his own works (although not showing his face) because it gives him possibility to shoot whenever he wants, and because he isn’t very comfortable in asking people to do weird/dangerous things on his sets.
The results are intriguing conceptual photographs conveying weird and undefined feelings, they have the power to make you uncomfortable without knowing exactly why, and let’s be honest, what’s more scary than not knowing what you’re afraid of?
I am not an art critic (I just have a great passion for art) and I don’t think I have the skills to better explain Sean’s work; as they say, an image is worth a thousand words, so I guess it’s better to let the following pictures speak!
