Research Interests

Shauna Frischkorn’s photographs deal with popular culture in everyday life.  She is especially interested in contemporary portraiture and youth culture.  For one project, Game Boys, she examined the cultural phenomenon of video games by making portraits of “gamers” while they were playing.  Currently, she is working on the series McWorkers and makes portaits of fast food workers in their uniforms.
