Shayna M. Jansen-Byers is an award winning photographer whose images focus in on the abstractions of everyday scenes and objects. She has a particular fascination with photographing buildings and their architectural components. As an artist, Shayna seeks to challenge the boundaries of non-objective photography. She approaches each image with a formalist philosophy of aesthetics. Her most recent pursuit is the exploration of a visual representation of human memory.
