seandackermann Even after Illmatic and the other albums #Nas brought out, I loved Stillmatic. One Mic will always be my favorite song.. "all I need is one life, one try"... before I started shooting, I would listen to that song and just get amped up and ready to work. So when I was able to create this photograph it was almost like I was able to record his approval of what I was doing from being inspired by him. The salute, the confirmation.
With that being said, one mistake I've made is not being vocal enough when I need to. Don't worry, people will start to get Ethered, soon enough.

seandackermann Do not let what society says reflect the personal opinion you have. We are all the same, yet all so different. We've been forcefed the idea for years that because we are different, we should not celebrate our similarities. Thats just a bunch of bullshit. Our differences should allow for all of us to appreciate what they are, and in turn realize the same trairs we all carry. People have tried to tell us that we should judge one another by the shade of our skin. Do we judge one another by different eye colors? Why dont we celebrate the fact more that the different shades of skin we have has allowed for amazing and diverse cultures to form. Think of all the different food, music, and lifestyles that have evolved through the years in so many vast areas of the world...and we're supposed to believe that's bad?! There's one race on this earth for our species - Human. Fuck anybody who wants to take the beauty of any human being on this earth no matter the shade of their skin and make them any less than the amazing creature they are. This photo was made for old press shot for the Vagina Monologues. However, the image can transcend. Perspective. 7d

seandackermann Through the years I've had many claims brought against me. People making outlandish remarks, drawing assumptions. It went from, "Are you gay? Because these pictures arent sexy dude", to, "you objectify women", all from the same style of photo... What I do is provide a safe haven. I'm hired because those who work with me know what kind of person I am, from either knowing me personally, or from hearing of experiences working with me. I do my best to provide a comfortable work environment, and create a mood that allows people to open up and explore only what they wish to by their own regard. Their regard, not mine. When someone starts a rumor saying one thing or another, and you happen to jump on board with it, the egg falls on your face. Though I cannot change how the image is perceived once it hits the internet, I know why and how they were created. The reason I started shooting work like this in the first place? Because I wanted to see if I could create work that showed my admiration and respect to the female form and spirit, not degrade it in the least bit. Show women with all different body types that they can feel comfortable in their skin, sans photoshop post processing that creates lies. However, that message easily gets lost in translation or not even discovered in the first place.
I wish you the willingness to understand rather than the defense mechanism of ignorance.

seandackermann Sometimes in order to get out of your comfort zone, you must eliminate it. You must start from scratch in order to get yourself to a destination you have yet to reach on your journey. This is me putting my foot down in order to improve and become better. Bold? Yes. Whats in the past is the past, and it can be viewed in my portfolio on my website. It's time to move forward, don't you think? 2mon
