It only just occurred to me that I haven't been sharing a lot of the images I've been making this year! They are piled up, hiding from Flickr. I've got lots to share over the next few days!

I've been sharing here for 8 years now and I love having a place to go to see all of my progress. And even seeing familiar faces here, that is the best. I'd love to find new people to follow, if you want to share yourself here!

I often think about how incredible things are from a distance. Mountains, cities, clouds. They look so massive and intimidating. But when you get closer, you lose that perspective. You start to see every detail, everything that the object is made of, and the mystery can be lost. To be wrapped in a cloud would be the most magical thing in the world to me, and so I decided to create that reality for myself.

I am updating from my hotel in Amsterdam. I am having a great time in this city. It is so quaint and laid back, healthy and lively, but also calming at the same time. I think all of the canals help. I taught a workshop yesterday and it went great - I met some amazing people, some who I already felt like I knew for ages. I really believe that the heart of a city lies with the city's inhabitants, and this city is beaming with life and love. I am so happy to be here.

Here is a behind the scenes photo story from this shoot: shadenproductions.com/blog/2012/08/05/reaching-for-clouds...

I was very much in the mood for something creepy when I did this, and with the help of Miss Aniela I finally got it out of my system! If you ask me, I'd say she took great pleasure in suffocating me with that piece of fabric ;-) Tehe, just kidding....

I have announced my NYC workshop being held March 20th. For more information you can look at this blog post. Email "info@brookeshaden.com" to sign up or for more information. I am really excited about this workshop because I will be back home on the east coast teaching with my family, as I am hoping my sister will be the model for the day and my mom the stylist ;-D

Flickr family!! I locked myself out of my account and just got back in...hello! It's April. I've never gone so long in my entire photo career without posting here. It's been sad.

Here's a catch-up of my year so far.

January I went to India for a couple of weeks to teach self-expression workshops to survivors of human trafficking. It was a great trip where I got to go to a huge wedding (where I stayed awake for 38 hours celebrating!) and even got to teach a group of 10-11 year old gals.

In February I bunkered in at home mostly and organized a 10-city tour! I'm coming to London, Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, NYC, Toronto, Vancouver and Melbourne.

In addition to those cities, I have other jobs to do abroad, so I'm also visiting Florence, Rome, Coventry, Wellington, and Queenstown!

Did I mention this is all in 6 weeks?

I've also been creating a brand new exhibition that debuts in NYC on June 13. I'm sending my images in to get proofed today! It has taken a lot of energy out of me to do all of this.

I also just got back from 10 days in Greece where we celebrated the graduation of The Light Space students. TLS is a photography school that I co-founded that teaches photograph as a life skill to underprivileged communities. Our program in Greece aids unaccompanied minor refugees.

I'll write more later, but for now, here is the first image I took this year when it snowed on New Year's Day. It feels like a lifetime ago, but also just like a blink away.

Xoxo, how are you??

I think I lost a few good eyelashes to this.

But don't worry, I wrapped my head in a plastic bag before Anthony started duct taping...except the plastic bag missed a lot of spots.

I'm really claustrophobic...and I wish I had nose holes haha. I could only breathe through my mouth, but it was okay. I shot it super fast and stayed calm.......calm.......whew.
