Shae DeTar creates otherworldly photographic prints, combining photography and painting to take her subjects out of reality and place them within her etherial world. DeTar shoots analog and digital photographs and then adds layers of paint to exaggerate color, create texture, and add an element of fantasy to the image.
DeTar, who grew up between Pennsylvania and New York City, is meticulous about creating her world. Her travels as a model in her late teens and early twenties lend to her inspiration for supernatural locations and exquisite costumes. She moved on to work in fashion behind the scenes and has since worked behind the camera for Aritizia, Cosabella, Free People, Alice and Olivia and Ballet Beautiful. DeTar lives and works in New York.
