BEHIND THE LENS
Shaun Krisher is the creative force behind Epic Photography of Atlanta. He studied documentary photography at Columbus State University, Harvard University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Shaun has been shooting for 23 years, developing his unique style. Cutting his teeth at underground punk and hardcore shows, Shaun learned photography in basement mosh pits and underground shows. Shaun has taken that punk rock energy and aesthetic and applied it to his fine art, turning familiar subjects on their heads and creating images that demand attention.
Shaun has work displayed in several galleries around metro Atlanta: the Samson & Delilah gallery, K Squared, Innovative Serigraphics Gallery, the Sewell Mill Cultural Center, and the Robert Kent Gallery. He recently won Best in Show at the Heineken Cities Showcase. Featured in Creative Loafing magazine and on WSB-TV.
He lives in Marietta, GA with his wife, Gretchen and his son Ronan. When he’s not working or playing guitar in Butcher the Baker, he’s chasing his son around the house or out showing him the world.
...or watching Harry Potter for the millionth time with his wife. :)
