Art has always represented a sense of freedom because it allows me to express myself in ways that I would not feel comfortable with in my everyday life. It provides a connection with the people I photograph, many of which I most likely would have not ever been acquainted had it not been for my camera, and through that experience, friendships were born. It provides a comfort zone for me to tell stories or explore emotions with the words I write, and to say things that I may not have been able to verbalize. It is a medium through which I can get people to look, to listen, to feel and to think.
The images and words contained in this book represent twenty five years of my evolution as an artist.
rSEANd PHOTOGRAPHY is a moniker adopted by R. Sean Dibble. He is based in Mt. Rainier, Md.
His first love was writing, including fiction, prose and songs, but he eventually found a deeper passion. Sean began taking pictures at the age of 14, and his images have included animals, nature and scenery, but he has always primarily photographed people. He concentrates mainly on male imagery presently, but his earliest portraits were solely of females.
When asked to describe his style, Sean simply says, “photography is a self-expressive art form, and I basically take pictures that appeal to my own artistic sensibilities.”
Sean’s images have appeared in Bruno Gmunder publications like Cock Tales, Beautiful Mag, YVY Magazine, Gazelle Magazine, ZOOGram, NEXT Media, Artistry of Male, Pink Rendezvous, Men and Photographers, and JustUsBoys.com, Sean also has his own online magazine – BLISS Male Mag, which features images and interviews of other artists whom he admires or is inspired by.
