Today's Artist is photographer and editor Cindy Sheffield Michaels. She is from Mississippi, received her BA in Spanish from Hendrix College and her MA in English from Georgia State University.
She has an eye for details that plays an important role in her editing work as well as her photography. In an interview for the examiner.com, she says that she takes pictures of objects that appeals to her on a personal level. If she likes it she will take a picture of it. She does it in such a way that it is not recognizable with the first look. She will tell people what it is when they try to guess what it is. She enjoys the game of guessing the viewer will play when looking at her work and the emotional reaction they have when seeing her work. Her dad played an important role in her growth as a photographer and instilled a curiosity in her.
Her latest show was in July at The Solarium in Historic Rite, Decatur, GA. Wonderful news is that she is soon to be a mother. Various magazines published her work for example, Form, The Furnace Review, GSU Review and Eudora Welty Newsletter.
