Artist Toure Shiver captures his view of society through the lens of a Canon 70D camera.

Toure’s passion for photography developed in high school after a digital photography and film class.

“What sparked my interest was the ability to bring prospective to life and capture moments in time,” Toure said.

Toure used his dark and detailed style of photography to create Tribes, his favorite work of art thus far. The goal was to create a melting pot of different models wearing a variety of colors and patterns that complimented their complexion. With emphasis placed on the beauty of different facial features and body types.

The power of the camera inspires Toure to keep creating.

“It’s amazing to see an individual slowly become comfortable with themselves throughout the shooting process.”

Toure’s passion for fashion fuels his desire to shoot individuals clothed in the latest trends. He dreams of working for a major fashion company like, Bape, REPRE- SENT, iloveugly and 10Deep.

Toure is currently a junior at North Carolina A&T State University studying Marketing; he plans to study abroad in Italy and intern at Adidas this summer.

Later, Toure plans to move to Toronto, Canada upon graduation and work with photography within the music scene. !
