Maddie Shelton is a Colorado native who traveled to California in pursuit of her BFA in Photography. She shoots 35mm film, but also incorporates book making, collage, and mixed media in her work, which allows her to emphasize feelings of struggle and of longing for home. Maddie’s photographic vision is driven almost purely by nostalgia, embracing an idealistic aesthetic which belies the truth behind the imperfect facade. The resulting work reveals an ongoing search to find her identity and sense of belonging within these perfectly imperfect homes that she finds.
