About Shelby Swann

"It beings and ends with you." - Shelby Swann

Her upbringing influences her work - producing a street aesthetic highlighting Black neighborhoods and the inner city. Through photography, her work aims to amplify community voices and empower contemporary lives. Her photography intends to challenge the perspective that Street photography differs from Fine Art photography.
