Shae Detar is an artist who is trying to revive an appreciation for hand-painted photography. Before the vast technological advancements in the industry, in particular color processing, people used to have to paint their photos if they wanted to capture even a semblance of the vibrancy of real life. With the popularity of filters that mimic vintage photography, Shae Detar has decided to delve even deeper to explore an older aesthetic with just as much, if not more, character.
Raised in Pennsylvania and New York city, Shae Detar is currently living in Los Angeles. Although she is a long-time artist, Shae Detar is gaining notoriety through her experimentations with film and digital photography, especially when it comes to her antique processing.
