Chrisean Rose is a Bahamian-born photographer based in Atlanta,GA. Before pursuing a career in photography, he started his creative endeavors as a painter, then a stylist. It was styling and creative directing for other photographers that led him to purchase his first camera fresh out of college. His photography esthetics are usually centered around nostalgic themes and rich in Afro Caribbean culture.
I’ve been doing photography for about 8yrs. I bought my first camera with scholarship money my last year of college.
How was it working with Martin Luther King’s daughter, Dr Bernice King?
It was a little intimidating only because we were in the middle of a pandemic, interactions were minimal, and I just didn’t know what to expect. Overall, we enjoyed it. I always enjoy photographing non-models because they aren’t as aware of themselves and take better direction which always makes a great canvas.
