Marshall Scheider is originally from Portland, Oregon, and currently living in Brooklyn, New York. Marshall’s work primarily focuses on American life, culture, and the changing physical and social landscape. Through images, he explores the passage of time and its link to the degradation and coinciding reconstruction of the physical manifestations of our society – a metamorphosis that Marshall finds beautifully paralleled in the natural environment.
I Am Singing
On a personal level, through the creation of this work I search for reconciliation; to unveil personal truths regarding the paradoxical nature of my own connection to America, and in a broader sense, home: The ways in which one can be inextricably connected to the things with which one is the most at-odds. Through pedestrian or banal views of the rural or urban landscape and passing shots of strangers on the street, I attempt to construct a far reaching but cohesive document of the America I see, here and now, as well as encourage contemplation about cultural identity and connection that may transcend any particular time or place.
