Savior. Self Portrait shot on outdated Polaroid Type 55 film with a vintage 1945 Speed Graphic press camera. Influenced by the modern masters of photography and surrealism, Stephen Sheffield creates images that are often heroic and dreamlike at the same time. Each image could be considered a performance and the dark suited “everyman” is the muse with Sheffield often inhabiting the suit. Using black and white film and an antique press camera, the mood of his photos is enhanced by the purposeful and expressive imperfections of the medium of silver gelatin. Sheffield, is a master storyteller depicting the ordinary in contrast with the unusual through the filter of his occasionally dark sense of humor. The subject is man, men, and masculinity with all its fears, failures, ego, irony, manufactured heroics and forced bravado. He supports the cinematic mood by use of traditional film and development techniques.
