Chloe Sheppard is a 19-year-old film photographer based in London, UK. The young photographer’s work is filled with beautiful, vintage shots of girls in natural environments and urban settings.
Her series anti(social) captures the latest generation of people, teenagers who are obsessed with their digital lives, instead of their real ones. “I’ve always felt more like someone who is always on the outside looking in. These photos I took to show a particular sense of invisibility whilst trying to talk to someone who is also on their phone. Even though I’m trying to take conventionally beautiful photographs, I’m still trying to convey a sense of dullness, bore, being vacant. The gaze is always on the phone,” she writes on her website.
