Shane LaVancher. Photographer.
Out of his Spring Street studio, Shane LaVancher creates images that are an incongruity: expository, yet simultaneously antithetical to his work as a fashion photographer. Beauty, frenzy, and death play an important role in his work; as well as whimsy and absurdity. Although now that I think about it, maybe he, along with collaborater Jason Clay Lewis, has captured something of the essence of his subjects, and of his profession as well.
