Donny Bradfield better known as Shabez Jamal is a fine art photographer based in St. Louis Missouri. Through photography, his work, rooted in portraiture, uses Queerness, not as a means of speaking about sexuality but as a catalyst to challenging varying power relations that can never be separated out in relation to gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, or class. Those featured in his work represent a cast of friends and muses who are founded in ongoing relationships mediated by the making and production of photograph. He obtained his A.F.A in Photography from St. Louis Community College - Florissant Valley in December 2015 and is currently working toward his B.F.A with an emphasis in Photography at the University of Missouri St. Louis.
