Shae Detar grew up in Pennsylvania and New York: in her teens she worked as a model in Milan. She now photographs both artistically and commercially for fashion brands such asAritizia, Cosabella, Free People and Alice and Olivia. Her work has been featured in Nylon Magazine and Juxtapose, and digitally on Vogue.com, Glamour.com and Style.com.
DeTar uses a traditional practice of hand painting prints, a technique she became interested in as a teenager when she started painting on magazines. The process adds a vibrant feeling to her compositions, creating a psychedelic and somewhat cinematic effect. Forbes Magazine has said of her work; “…While many artists seek to filter their sensibilities into their work, they often fall short. That cannot be said of Detar’s images; she has created her own visual utopia in both personal and commercial endeavors. “
