Rocky Schenck the poetic photographer…
The artist is well-known for his director work on music videos with major artists such as Adele, Joni Mitchell and Nick Cave. His photographs have another dimension, a sense of a world that exist in ones imagination. As he states// I actually believed a place like Oz existed./ Rocky Schenck creates mystical settings in his work and brings the viewer into a mystical Oz…
If you should put yourself in an artistic tradition what would that be? /I’m an artist – with a quite vivid imagination. And I experience fantastical dreams when I go to sleep every night – and I tend to remember them, which I utilize in my work. I truly enjoy working in many different types of mediums, and thankfully I have been able to do this throughout my career. Is there a name for that tradition?/
