Born and raised in the heart of Detroit and having worked more than 15 years in special education and assistive technology, Shekenia Mann learned to appreciate the beauty of the human spirit and spent years honing her expertise in macro portrait photography. Balancing the gritty magnificence of the city with the allure of the human face and form, she discovers beauty in the obscure and the ordinary, the mundane and the monumental. Finding subjects on her travels and right where she lives, in each picture Shekenia captures the essence of Detroit and the African American experience with powerful emotion and sensitivity.
Using state of the art equipment and minimalist techniques that highlight the best qualities of her subjects, she specializes in portraits for professionals and families, sports photography, candid lifestyle and event photography, as well as commercial and product photography.
