Nathaniel Shannon is a New York based freelance photographer and musician whose aggressive approach to live-music photography captures each subject in moments of complete artistic abandon.

Nathaniel draws his inspiration from the likes of Glen E. Friedman, Stanley Donwood and Floria Sigismond. His work captures the humor, bile and visceral escapism of brutal musicianship resulting in a lighthearted, but at times uncomfortably intimate exploration, of contemporary music culture, lifestyles, and imagery.

While Nathaniel’s in-your-face, eye-to-eye, gorilla methods have caused criticism by some musicians and associates of the metal, rap, hardcore, and punk-rock scenes of New York and Detroit, and Atlanta, the volume of praise for his work has led to exposure in over fifty publications, several record sleeves, and seven installations. Nathaniel was raised in Ypsilanti, MI and attends the School of Visual Arts in NYC. He currently resides on the LES.

Nathaniel is currently at work on an untitled full-length book, which is a collection of the last decade of his live music photography. He is also in production of The Dead Baby Joke Book: A Coffee Table Companion. Recently, an installation of a few photographs from the Dead Baby Joke book resulted in a health complaint being filed with the SVA Human Resources department, and a toxicology test taken. The lab results, which were testing "blood" involved with the instillation came back negative, surprise, surprise.
