Sean Fader

I have loved Sean from 2 seconds into meeting him back in grad school at Maryland Institute College of Art. So pleased to be working together again here in NYC. Sean has several shows lined up this season. For this work titled Sup? we printed on Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl 290 gsm.

“Sup? Is a lived performance piece.  For 365 days I trolled online dating and hookup websites looking for men who interested me.  I looked at their profile and pre-visualized a portrait of who I thought they might be.  Then I contacted them and asked them out on a date. The date consisted of arriving at their home (never having met them in person)  pouring them a glass of wine, and photographing them immediately. I directed them to enact my preconceived ideas of who I imagined them to be.  After our shoot, I took them out on a date.  This allowed me to consider how I might alter my first portrait of them.   After our date, we collaborated on creating an image that we both felt represented them.”

First round of proofs!










Beautiful mounting to white sintra care of Shadow Box Shop production team!

Everybody Needs Someone, Aging Out of Foster Care Project is an important work by Salaam Garage  (advocacy journalism, citizen journalism, humanitarian media, or documentary film and photography. Members create stories to help cause positive social change by helping the small organizations who are solving the world’s biggest problems and injustices.  We (FIS) are so proud to be printing for the June 23rd Museum Exhibition at the Long Island Children’s Museum (LICM). From Salaam Garage: Removed from their birth parents for abuse, neglect or abandonment, foster kids typically grow up in various foster families and group homes.  Those homes may last for as little as a few days or as long as a few years, but they rarely provide enough stability to ground kids with the education and skills they need to start out on their own.
When these children turn 21, they officially “age out” of foster care. That means they’re no longer entitled even to minimum room and board from the foster care system. All of a sudden, they have to fend for themselves. Nationwide, about 20,000 of the 542,000 children in foster care “age out” each year. Five percent of them – about 1,100 young adults – are left on their own in the New York City area.

This project will culminate in a book, a website, an exhibition and family workshops. For more information and to give (and receive some killer thank you gifts)  please visit the KICK STARTER page!

And please spread the word!

For this project we will be printing on Moab Lasal Photo Matte 230 gsm and Tyvek for ink jet. We are partnering up with Shadowbox Shop (SBX) framing in Brooklyn to deliver some beautiful prints and slick mounts from SBX. Love the love!
